Carbon waste is damaging to the climate. This Earth Day, why not take some simple steps to cut your emissions?
Being more efficient about temperature control is one of the most impactful ways to reduce your household carbon footprint. You can accomplish this goal by upgrading to a smart thermostat, or by replacing the seals around windows. This will keep more hot or cold air in, depending on the season.
Cutting down on electricity use is another good carbon-saving tip. By selecting efficient devices such as LED lights — and turning appliances off when you’re not using them — you can lower both your power bill and carbon waste.
And remember: When boosting your home’s earth-friendliness, check to see if your efforts qualify for government incentives like rebates or tax credits.
