This is a 9 video series on reducing an impressive 68% natural gas consumption, 43% carbon footprint, and saving about $1,000 per year.
I took my own home, a sixty’s bungalow and calculated the energy consumption as it would have been when it was built. Then I made a number of standard upgrades, nothing over a typical upgrade. Attic insulation, furnace, basement insulation with subfloor, thermostat and settings, LED lighting, domestic hot water, and the windows. With these changes I reduced my gas consumption by 67%, and electrical consumption by 14%. A financial savings of just under $1,000 per year but varies depending on the carbon tax calculation. The videos will describe what changes I made for maximum return and my recommendations concerning each upgrade and some suggestions if your considering some additional renovations.
Original Home Energy Consumption:
- Natural Gas: 5,313 Cu M
- Electricity: 7,292 KWh
- Co2 Emissions = 17.4 Tons
With Upgrades Home Energy Consumption:
- Natural Gas: 1,693 Cu M
- Electricity: 6,240 KWh
- Co2 Emissions = 9.8 Tons
Total Home Energy Consumption Savings:
- Natural Gas 3,617.5 Cu M
- Electricity: 1,052
- Co2 Emissions = 7.6 Tons
