Did you know that heating our homes with methane gas (natural gas) is the second biggest source of emissions in our community? Reducing your home's heating needs is an important way to reduce carbon emissions.
Seal drafts & insulate; turn down the heat; use less hot water; upgrade your heating system. What steps have you or your landlord taken to shrink your heating carbon footprint? What would make it easier to do more?
Sudbury's plan to reach net zero includes existing homes using 50% less energy by 2040. Make a plan to do your part, or talk with your landlord about their plan if you can.
