What’s the difference?

What is the difference between energy efficiency and energy conservation?

Imagine you’re in your living room, fretting about the cost of heating your home. If you should decide to turn down the thermostat, sacrificing a little comfort for energy savings, that would be energy conservation. If you decided, however, to air-seal and weatherstrip your home, maybe even replacement windows and added insulation, leaving the thermostat where it is, that would be energy efficiency.

Ultimately, no matter the approach, they both result in energy savings, money savings and increased comfort. And that’s conservation.
