How can insulating my house help solve Global Warming and Climate Change?

By on Jan 3, 2017 in Energy Blog | 0 comments

Insulation refers to an energy savings measure, which provides resistance to temperature flow and contributes to maintaining the temperature for a longer period. Insulated houses use less energy to keep them warm. In the recent years, the awareness campaigns regarding global warming have started to pay off, with more and more people making efforts at an individual level to contribute to this cause; the future is showing a glimmer of hope. ‘Greenhouse gases’ such as carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide exist naturally in the atmosphere, but also are released in significant quantities as a result of human activities. Scientists predict that, given current trends of increasing emissions of most greenhouse gases, atmospheric concentrations are expected to increase through the next century and beyond. And according to a report summary by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change revealed that “Most emission scenarios indicate that, in the absence of mitigation policies, greenhouse gas emissions will continue to rise during the next century and lead to greenhouse gas concentrations that by the year 2100 are projected to change climate more than projected for twice the pre-industrial concentrations of carbon dioxide.” It seems only prudent to pursue appropriate means to encourage changes in human behaviour which will lead to reductions in the level of greenhouse gas emissions and, ultimately, to a decrease in the threat from global climate change. In this regard, adoption and implementation of technologies designed to enhance humankind’s ability to reduce the consumption of energy are perhaps of paramount concern. The Role of Energy Efficiency and Insulation: Experts at R-Control define energy efficiency as the adoption of cost-effective ways to reduce energy consumption through existing and improved technologies as well as through sound energy use practices. The idea behind energy efficiency is quite simple – if people consume less energy, there will be less emission of greenhouse gases as the result of the burning of fossil fuels. That, in turn, means a greater supply of fossil fuels which can then be used for other purposes in both developed and developing nations. Energy efficiency technologies and practices can, therefore, play a significant role in reducing the threat of global climate change. One of the easiest and most effective energy efficient technologies...
