Climate Crisis Solution #14: Green Your Home
A few retrofits will get your home, and the planet, breathing easier and save you some serious cash! Appliances: The EPA and the European Union make this a no-brainer. Look for the Energy Star label on electronics, refrigerators, washers, and air conditioners. Pennywise is pound foolish; the money you'd save on cheaper appliances, you'll eventually spend on energy bills. Water Heater: Wrapping your old water header in a cozy blanket can reduce your emissions by 1,000 pounds of CO2 a year. Blanket insulation kits can be found for less than $20.
