Our homes are addicted to energy. Electricity is constantly drawn by appliances, lights and electronics. Natural gas is almost always burning — warming water and heating the air. Over the course of a year a home generates quite a carbon footprint. In 2016, homes accounted for 19 percent of U.S. greenhouse emissions. Using energy wisely in your home will save you money and help improve our environment.
