10. Insulate your entire home.

Insulating your entire home protects you, the environment and your ears (soundproofing). Just as there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes, when you insulate your home, you are giving your home the clothes to handle any condition - and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time. 


To help you Insulate your entire home, here’s a simple 2-step process:


1 - Buy some insulation for your entire home. 


2 - With your non-dominant hand, call an installation installer and ask this person to insulate your entire home.  


The savings (to your wallet and the planet) will pay for itself allowing your future you to buy more hybrid and electric only vehicles in the future.  


P.S. - It’s also been reported that ‘Insulating your entire home’ is very common in corporate housing. Not only are corporate housing companies focused on the environment and sustainability, but since all utilities are included when you rent a furnished corporate rental, this makes it easier to be environmentally and fiscally more efficient.   


10. Insulate your entire home.

Do you know how much heat you're losing by not properly insulating your home? Heat (and energy) slip out the cracks of windows, doors, and other drafty areas but your home also doesn't hold onto the heat very well without proper insulation. Make sure to insulate loft and wall areas to the best of your ability. This will help trap heat in the winter, keep it cool in the warmer months, and even mean using less energy and fronting less on the electric bill.
