12 Ways To Create a More Sustainable Home
Get a Home Energy Audit
This should be your first step in understanding where your energy costs and emissions come from. Greg Fasullo, CEO of Elevation, a residential clean technology company, says home energy audits can cost as little as $100 while revealing areas where you’re wasting the most energy and money.
Home energy auditors check for air leakage, determine your insulation levels and inspect your fireplaces, lights and smoke detectors. They’ll even analyze your electrical bills. Best of all, Fasullo says the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) covers 30% of the cost of the audit (up to $150), making this step a no-brainer.
