Global warming is the observed increase in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere and oceans in recent decades. Scientists have concluded that human activities are contributing to global warming by adding large amounts of hear-trapping gases to the atmosphere. Using a case study like Nigeria with a population of about 140 million, the main contribution in this research is focused on a financial and ecological energy efficient home design model by considering how the energy saved from ~sing EEH as a tool for DSM can reduce CO emission. A cost benefit analysis was 2 performed and the system was found to be an efficient method of promoting the use of energy saving devices, managing load demand, efficiently utilizing available energy, environmental protection and creation of reserve (savings). Averagely implementing EERHM will result in a national global warming reduction to the tune of 393.3 X 109 Kg of C02• The technology is recommended to governments and other agencies as part of reducing Co2 and of global warming.
