You have the opportunity to be a climate leader — and it starts at home.

New York Homeowners Are Uniquely Positioned to Help us Tackle Climate Change

Did you know that heating and cooling in buildings represents 32% of New York State’s carbon emissions? That means if you own your home, you can directly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by making sure your home is properly air sealed and insulated, switching to heat pumps, or installing solar panels to create your own renewable energy. The best part? These home improvements not only help the environment, they also help eliminate toxic fumes like methane and carbon monoxide, improve temperature control, and reduce noise levels for a home that is healthier and more comfortable.

Opportunities for Apartment Living

As a renter or condo owner, you may feel as though you don’t have control over the energy costs in your home. But there are many no-cost and low-cost opportunities to save energy without making any major changes to your space. For example, simple actions such as replacing inefficient light bulbs with LEDs, using a programmable thermostat, and choosing community solar can all make a big difference.
