When most people think about carbon emissions they think about cars. However buildings represent a much larger carbon footprint. When we break this down and look between passenger cars and residential buildings we find that homes represent almost twice the emissions as our cars.
By increasing the energy efficiency in our homes we reduce the overall carbon footprint of the home. This is a great first step in doing your part for the environment.
There is also much controversy about the new way that natural gas is being extracted from the earth where is has never been found before. The process of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) the soil has come under scrutiny internationally due to concerns about environmental and health safety, and has been suspended or banned in some countries. Unfortunately, it has been on the rise here in the United States. By reducing the amount of natural gas your home uses you can do your part in reducing the overall demand for fossil fuels.
Plain and simple no matter if you believe in climate change or not, we all know that polluting is harmful. By making your home more energy efficient you will cause less pollution and that can’t be a bad thing.
