Why should I care if my home is energy-efficient? Follow

Not only will an energy-efficient home save you money, but it will also reduce air pollution. Home energy consumption accounts for nearly 17% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions and 15% of energy consumption nationwide. This stems from the fact that energy is produced by burning fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas. So, by purchasing an energy-efficient home you are reducing fossil fuel energy production that has been linked to global warming.
