Save Heat, Save the Earth
One of the main ways that homes contribute to global warming is by failing to monitor their energy usage. What I mean by this is: using energy when energy does not need to be used. An example is having the heating on during the day. This has to stop! Also, many people’s homes are not built to be energy efficient. Many homes lack the proper insulation needed to keep heat in, which in turn allows for less energy to be used. As heat rises, it is important to have sound ceiling insulation (known as ฉนวนกันเสียงเพดาน in Thai). This is a great place to start if you want to lower your home’s carbon footprint.

These simple tricks will allow one to gradually reduce their carbon footprint and be more ecologically sound.
