Hello! I'm John Loveless and Welcome To John Saves Energy!
I'm glad you made it. If you want to learn how to save energy while saving money in the process, you have come to the right place. Shall we get started?
It is my passion and calling in life to educate the world on how to save energy and money, by increasing the efficiency of our homes, businesses, appliances and vehicles.
We Quit Gasoline for good: We did it! We recently sold our only gas vehicle. No more buying gasoline for us, ever.
Thanks Gasoline! You got us through some tough times and your energy density to this day is still amazingly high. But to be perfectly honest, YOU STINK! Since the sun provides all the energy we need, in our own backyard, for free, forever, without any pollution or wars, I think it’s time we part ways.
On 12/31/2013, I was on KUER radio (an NPR station) to discuss Geothermal heat pumps. The issues were:
- Why would anyone want to install a Geothermal HVAC since natural gas is so abundant and cheap?
- Since Geothermal heat pumps are so efficient and green, why would anyone want to continue heating their home with natural gas?

Passive Solar Heating: On an cloudless winter solstice day, 16,000 watts of passive solar heat is radiated through the south-facing windows and into our home. That's the equivalent heating capacity of 10 electric space heaters all running simultaneously, for FREE!!!
Even a house cat knows that sunlight = warm spot. Are you as smart as a cat? Why not use the free energy from the sun to help heat your home this winter?
There will always be a demand for more and more energy, whether that energy comes from the ground or the sun, there will be enough for everyone if it is utilized wisely and efficiently.
It isn't hard either. Just spend a few minutes looking around my site and you will be amazed at how easy (and fun) it is to make improvements that will increase your energy efficiency, saving you money and reduce your negative impact on the planet.
The greatest investment you can make is in knowledge. Knowledge is power and having your own source of power brings independence, job security, self sufficiency and freedom.
