Carbon Reduction Tips for Homes

Look around your house – there are many ways to reduce energy consumption, conserve and reduce emissions!

01 Get a Programmable thermostat

Costs about $50 or less and will save you that much or more in the first year.

02 Install Weatherstripping and Caulking

Costs almost nothing while reducing your energy use, reducing drafts and improving comfort.

03 Heating and Cooling

Keep your heating and cooling system(s) tuned. When it’s time to replace, do your research and ask for ENERGY STAR.

04 Insulation

Weatherstripping, caulking and insulation work together to save you energy, improve the comfort of your home, make it quieter and help you save money.

05 Water-Conserving Showerheads & Toilets

You can reduce water and heating costs, even in your bathroom. To save even more water, turn the faucet off when brushing or shaving. These simple changes and steps can save many thousands of gallons of water annually.

06 Appliances

Always pay attention to the total lifetime cost, including energy—not just the price tag. Look for the ENERGY STAR label. Bigger isn’t always better – Just get the size you need; do you really need that extra refrigerator in the basement?
