This ecometer shows you how the material selections of your house affect its carbon emissions. The pointer on left shows carbon emissions equivalent to the average carbon footprint of a house of the same size and the pointer on right shows carbon emissions equivalent to your choises. The average carbon footprint is from a wood-framed house insulated with mineral wool and built according to standards. If Your House pointer stays above the Average house pointer then your choises are more ecological.

Material selections make a big difference on the ecological friendliness of a house. Up to 30% of the total life-cycle emissions of a house which is built according to current standards are generated in connection with its construction.
