Reduce Your Carbon Tax Costs With Efficient Insulation Products From Energy Savers Insulation
Starting January 1, a carbon tax will be included in the price of all fuels that emit greenhouse gases when combusted at a rate of $20/tonne in 2017 and $30/tonne in 2018.
These include transportation and heating fuels such as diesel, gasoline, natural gas and propane. The overall costs may vary for each household. However, if your home is not properly insulated, you may end up paying higher than average carbon taxes. No one likes paying more taxes.
Although electricity usage will not directly impact carbon tax costs, proper home insulation is crucial. Proper insulation will keep the heat from escaping your home in the winter. As a result, your furnace will not run excessively; keeping your natural gas usage down.
