Making your home energy efficient with natural gas

first_img TAGSLake Apopka Natural Gas District Previous articleA call to limit water use during drought conditionsNext articleIs it a mole or skin cancer? Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter From the Lake Apopka Natural Gas DistrictWith an abundant supply of natural gas in the United States, the U.S. Department of Energy estimates that consumption of the fuel source will increase 20 percent by 2030—and it’s no surprise why. Natural gas has been recognized as the best energy value for consumers, costing less than electricity, propane, and oil.Natural gas appliances, like water heaters, furnaces, and stoves, are incredibly efficient, which means they typically cost less to operate. If you’re looking to increase the energy efficiency of your home, here are five ways that natural gas appliances can provide efficiency while helping you save money:FurnacesHeating systems are typically the largest energy users in a home, especially on the coldest days of the year. However, natural gas furnaces are highly efficient, allowing you to save money without sacrificing comfort. In fact, today’s natural gas heating systems can operate at 90 percent efficiency or higher. That means for every dollar spent on energy, at least 90 cents are used for heating.Tankless Water HeatersTankless natural gas water heaters provide continuous hot water, while also reducing costs. Compared to electric, tankless gas water heaters can save you a few hundred dollars a year, and they operate without the need to recover since there’s no tank of water to constantly reheat. Tankless models are also efficient in terms of space, as they can be mounted to a wall or installed in compact areas.Ranges, Cooktops, and OvensMost professional chefs prefer cooking with natural gas because of its precise temperature control, even heat distribution and quick on-and-off ability. Gas ranges, cooktops and ovens also offer superior efficiency and reliability. For example, newer gas stoves are often equipped with automatic ignition rather than a pilot light, which can save up to 30 percent on energy costs.Clothes DryersNatural gas clothes dryers can provide substantial energy savings, thanks to their incredible efficiency. Modern gas dryers use a lot less energy than older models, and they can usually dry two loads of towels in the time it takes an electric dryer to finish one load. That means you save money while benefiting from a dryer that’s gentle on fabrics.Pool HeatersSince natural gas heats up quicker than electricity, you’ll notice immediate efficiency and cost savings with a gas pool heater. Natural gas pool heaters ignite only when you need it, and as a bonus, they can automatically detect unsafe water temperatures.If you’re looking to purchase efficient natural gas ranges, dryers, hot water heaters or fireplace logs, Lake Apopka Natural Gas District offers interest-free financing for new and existing customers.

Songzhuang has received a continuous influx of young artists and art-related industries in past few years. The local courtyard homes are now largely leased to outsiders and are in high demand. The small and medium-sized apartments, office buildings, galleries, and small businesses have developed naturally to satisfy local demand. In contrast to government-backed integrated development projects, Song Zhuang’s new construction projects are often funded and managed by multiple private parties.  Dongrun Apartments is one such collective endeavor.  Save this picture!Site PlanThe apartments are situated on the northeast corner of the roundabout alongside Songzhuang’s main thoroughfare.  The building extends 110 meters from East to West, and is 20 meters deep from North to South (entrance to rear).  The ground floor is comprised of galleries and businesses.  Apartments are located above and account for approximately two thirds of the building’s total floor area.   CopyApartments•Beijing, China Area:  21500 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Praxis d’Architecture Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/871307/dongrun-apartment-praxis-darchitecture Clipboard “COPY” Dongrun Apartment Building / Praxis d’ArchitectureSave this projectSaveDongrun Apartment Building / Praxis d’ArchitectureSave this picture!© Zhou Ruogu, Jin Fengzhe+ 15Curated by Han Zhang Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/871307/dongrun-apartment-praxis-darchitecture Clipboard Photographs Save this picture!© Zhou Ruogu, Jin FengzheA facade module was created based on dimensions of a typical apartment unit.  This module has been repeated with in incremental increase on each subsequent floor so as to create a pattern that leaves the viewer a sense of movement.  The vertical division between the volumes of overhanging and the inverse-steps serves to clearly demarcate the boundaries between the building’s offices and two apartment sections.  Consequently, the building massing contains four sections: a ground floor and three high rise sections, whose division speaks to their differing contents.Save this picture!© Zhou Ruogu, Jin FengzheThe apartments are primarily small and medium-sized.  A basic apartment is 4.5 meters wide, and depth ranges from 9.7 to 16 meters.  Small to mid-sized apartment ranges from 50 to 75 square meters per apartment.  Larger apartments in the range of 90 square meters and above are located along the building’s easternmost facade.  The building’s office section has an approximate average area of 800 square meters per floor, and features a central, vertical transportation nexus.  The standard width of an individual office is twice that of a standard apartment. Save this picture!DiagramThe structure of framed shear wall and the side-by-side arrangement of its apartments open the building to remodeling and versatile use.  Residents may select one or more collocated standard living or working units according to their needs, and are free to create a wide-open space by removing the partitions between units, which do not bear any structural weight.  The largest structural overhang protrudes 3.6 meters in accordance with the economic demands .Save this picture!© Zhou Ruogu, Jin FengzheThe building’s east and west walls as well as the bands between floors on its south side are paneled with white aluminum.

The scheme enables Tesco stores to donate unsold food to feed people in need through a technology platform developed by Irish social enterprise, FoodCloud. It was filmed at Bo’ness Academy, one of 5,000 charities that benefit from the scheme across the UK. Each week the Academy receives surplus food from the Tesco Bo’ness store, and turns it into wholesome homemade snacks and cakes for their on-site community café.As a result school children at the Academy learn new cooking skills, and the school gets to give back to the local community. Many of the visitors to the café each week are retired, and it gives them the opportunity to socialise and enjoy good food and company.center_img Tesco Community Food Connection scheme reaches 5m meals milestone (January 2017)Tesco donates food to mosques to mark Ramadan (June 2016)Tesco expands trial of donating unsold food to UK charities  (June 2015) Advertisement  277 total views,  1 views today  278 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis48 Tesco creates TV advert to showcase its charity food schemelast_img read more

Detroit union supports political prisoner Rev. Edward Pinkney

first_imgThe case of Michigan political prisoner the Rev. Edward Pinkney has attracted the attention of — and won support from — professors employed by the Wayne County Community College District, based in and around Detroit. Five faculty members who had been discussing Rev. Pinkney’s plight brought the issue before the Oct. 23 membership meeting of Local 2000 of the American Federation of Teachers. After hearing about the many racist injustices committed against Rev. Pinkney and his sentence of 2.5 to 10 years in prison, the local, representing 800 college professors, went on record in his support. The resolution also called upon the director of the Michigan Department of Corrections to reverse the punitive transfer of Rev. Pinkney to the Marquette branch prison, some 500 miles away from his spouse and attorney. Copies of the resolution will be sent to Rick Snyder, the state’s right-wing governor, the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court. These courts are hearing various appeals on the case. The resolution also calls upon the Michigan state AFT and the national executive board of the AFT to publicize Rev. Pinkney’s case and educate the membership about his situation. A collection was taken up for Rev. Pinkney’s attorney to help pay his legal fees.Sole, a chemistry professor, is a member of AFT Local 2000 and helped draft the resolution supporting Pinkney.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

July 26 commemorated in Chicago

first_imgDozens of people turned out in Chicago on July 26 for a program commemorating the 64th anniversary of the armed attack on Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista’s Moncada Barracks in 1953. That heroic act failed, but it triggered the beginning of the Cuban Revolution. At his trial, the leader of the attack, Fidel Castro, made a ringing and detailed declaration on why the dictatorship must be overthrown. His speech, titled “History Will Absolve Me,” was widely published and became the manifesto for the revolution.The 26 of July program was organized by the Chicago Cuba Coalition and co-sponsored by the Venezuelan Consulate in Chicago, Workers United (an SEIU affiliate), Black Lives Matter Chicago, the Chicago ALBA Solidarity Committee, the Mexico Solidarity Network, the National Boricua Human Rights Network, the Puerto Rican Cultural Center and Workers World Party.

NPPC: Mexico Pork Exports Rule Maintains Good Trade Relationship

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for January 17, 2018Next articleSpeaker Ryan: Canada the Real Problem with NAFTA Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter The National Pork Producers Council says allowing Mexico to export pork to the U.S. is a sign of good trade relations. The Department of Agriculture last week finalized a regulation allowing Mexican states to export pork to the United States. USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service is implementing a science-based risk assessment that determined Mexico is free of Classical Swine Fever, a highly contagious viral disease in pigs. It was eradicated from the United States in the late 1970s. APHIS in 2016 concluded that the risk of the disease from pork imports from Mexico is negligible.Noting that Mexico is the second largest export market for U.S. pork, NPPC President Ken Maschhoff says: “Maintaining our good relationship with that country by ensuring fair and reciprocal trade is paramount for our producers.” Mexico first requested access to the U.S. market in 2007, but USDA determined Mexico’s control program for Classical Swine Fever was not sufficient to classify the country as negligible risk for the disease.Source : NAFB News Service SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Jan 16, 2018 SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News NPPC: Mexico Pork Exports Rule Maintains Good Trade Relationship NPPC: Mexico Pork Exports Rule Maintains Good Trade Relationshiplast_img read more

Argentina Replaces China as Largest Buyer of U.S. Soy

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Argentina Replaces China as Largest Buyer of U.S. Soy The trade war between the U.S. and China has made Argentina the top buyer of U.S. soybeans. Department of Agriculture Data shows that 1.3 million metric tons of U.S. soybeans have been inspected for export to Argentina from September 1 through November 22. That compares with none in the same year-ago period. China, previously the top buyer of U.S. soy, is seeking purchases elsewhere amid the tit-for-tat trade war with the United States.Bloomberg News reports that normally Argentina processes its own soybeans to export meal and oil. But, with China on the hunt for non-American soy, it’s shipping out more raw beans and buying more from the U.S. to feed its crushers, especially after a drought earlier this year curbed output. At the start of the trade war, China placed a 25 percent tariff on U.S. soybean, seeking to inflict the most pain possible on the U.S. by targeting agriculture.Argentina is closing in on an agreement to send exports of beef to the United States for the first time in nearly 20 years. Reuters reports the agreement, expected to be signed within days, would simultaneously open beef imports to both countries. Argentina’s International Trade Secretary says the deal would open a market for the U.S. cattle sector, although demand for U.S. beef is low in Argentina. Under the agreement being crafted, Argentina would have a 20,000 metric ton limit on exports to the U.S., while there would be no limit on U.S. beef exports to Argentina.Another senior Argentine official confirmed that Argentina and the United States were “close” to striking a deal, according to Reuters. Argentina stopped exporting beef to the United States about 17 years ago due to U.S. concerns about contamination of Argentine cattle by foot-and-mouth disease.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Argentina Replaces China as Largest Buyer of U.S. Soy SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Nov 27, 2018 Previous articleForestry Title a Farm Bill Sticking PointNext articleBill to Extend Biodiesel Tax Credits Introduced in House NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Concern over contamination of Rosbrien water supply

first_imgTwitter WhatsApp Facebook Senator Maria ByrneA ‘DO Not Drink’ notice that was imposed on a section of main in the Rosbrien area of Limerick City has now been lifted following consultation with the HSE.This notice was imposed when excess levels of aluminium were recorded on the scheme late last week.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It affected approximately 40 households along the Rosbrien Road, near the Old Crescent Rugby Grounds.“All affected customers can now resume normal use of their water supply,” a spokesman for Irish Water told the Limerick Post.“Irish Water and Limerick City and County Council worked throughout the weekend to resolve the issue. Scouring of the network in the area was carried out and further sampling was undertaken. Following this, the HSE was consulted and it was agreed to lift the notice.”Bottled water was distributed to affected households over the weekend while the notice remained in place.Fine Gael Senator Maria Byrne says residents in the area are concerned about how long they have been drinking contaminated water.“I put this question to Irish Water who have informed me they carry out regular checks on mains they maintain and it’s not that long since the last test. This time when they found large levels of aluminium they brought in the HSE for advice who decided it was better for the residents not to drink the water or use it for food preparation.“It is important that every step is taken to sort this matter and make sure that the water is safe. This is a health risk and action needs to be taken immediately,” Senator Byrne commented.Irish Water apologised for any inconvenience to customers as a result of this issue and thanked them for their patience as they worked to resolve it.“We will continue to monitor the supply to ensure that the matter is fully resolved and that the water remains safe to drink. Further information and additional advice for customers is available on www.water.ie or by calling the Irish Water Customer Care Helpline on 1850 278 278.
