Water heating and refrigeration almost rank the same, about 13% of the whole. Space cooling is the lowest part, 7%. We can clearly see that space heating consumes the most. If we can take some measures to control it, we'll save a lot of energy.
Now most of space heating comes from the consumption of coal and electricity, the traditional energy sources to supply family need. In this point, I think we should make good use of solar energy, which is renewable. In addition, using energy-saving lamps, making air-conditioners on a moderate setting and switching off the computer readily when we don't use it anymore are all good ways to save energy.
People should realize the importance of saving energy, and to save energy is a long-term plan for all the human beings.

You should start your essay with a brief account of the impact of floods of smart phone apps on their users and then explain the advantages and disadvantages of numerous smart phone apps.

As is depicted in the picture,a woman talks to a man,complaining of the floods of apps.What she intends to express includes two points : apps would generate many amazing things; various choices of apps draw the users attention so that they ignore the real world.
Let's put it another way. On one hand, it is convenient for smart phone users to have so many apps. They can surf the Net through apps to do whatever they want: buying things,chatting with their friends, receiving emails, having video conferences, reading books, and watching films, etc. On the other hand, the side effects caused by apps cannot be undervalued.Firstly, it may lead to message leakage. Secondly, the rubbish files produced by apps may slowdown the running speed of smart phones. Thirdly, overuse of smart phones will be harmful for one's physical and mental health. Smart phone users are engrossed in their screens and are isolated from the outside world, ignoring everything around them.
To conclude, apps should be utilized wisely. When enjoying the enrichment of apps we should stay awake and not be dragged into the virtual world.
