Our homes account for the largest part of our personal carbon footprint (unless you happen to own a private jet). Collectively, the 115 million residences in America today use an estimated 22.5 percent of the country’s energy. This means that one of the best things you can do to help save the planet from the impact of global warming is to make sure you are wasting as little energy in your home as possible.

To do this, you need to target the five main areas of the home that either consume or are responsible for wasting the most energy. These are, in order of impact:

1. Windows

2. HVAC (heating and cooling your home)



3. Water Heaters
