- not at home
- year round
Assumptions We Made350 W/floor estimate, either up or down (esp as many trips from a higher floor may require the elevator to come up to that floor). Assume you take the stairs for one floor, each direction (2 stories total)
Each time you carry out this action, the immediate impacts are:
- Saves 0.03 dollars
- Saves 0.35 kilowatt hours
- Saves 0.48 lbs of CO2
Some actions also have additional impact over time. For this action, these are:
Potential Annual ImpactWe assume that this action will be carried out weekly (about 52 times a year). In this case, in a year you could save:
- 1.76 dollars
- 18.20 kilowatt hours
- 24.75 lbs of CO2
