The energy used for houses is a significant amount. Residential buildings are responsible for around 24% of overall electricity use and 12% of total carbon emissions in Australia.
Replacing a fossil fuel machine you use with an electric machine in your home saves money and reduces GHG pollution - and lets you tap into that abundant energy to be more comfortable and more active.
The following is a list of actions you can do to save energy, emissions and money. The order you do this in will depend on what you value most.
You might do solar first because this will save the most money and emissions. But ceiling insulation makes the house warmer in winter and cooler in summer (careful - a few details need to be considered on this action.) Or replacing a methane gas appliance with an electric appliance reduces your demand for this fossil fuel in your home.
