It is hard to identify just how much our home is related to greenhouse gas emissions. It is not like driving a car where you know that fossil fuels are combusting in order to make us go.

We can’t always recognize the emissions that are being pumped out of our homes every day as a result of a lack of energy efficiency.

In fact, the environmental impact of our homes can actually be pretty big. We burn fossil fuels, even if not directly, to heat our homes.

Improving the energy efficiency of your home will allow you to rely less on carbon intensive power plants, thus reducing the plant’s demand and benefiting the environment overall by reducing carbon dioxide emissions.

There are many simple steps you can take to make your home more energy efficient. Here, in this infographic below, you can review all the basics of turning your home into an energy-friendly abode.
