The research is therefore, significant, as it provides useful insights regarding the use of renewable technology in tackling climate change in the residential sector. The empirical analysis of tons of carbon dioxide released against the life-cycle costs of acquiring, implementing, and maintaining heating technology provides useful insight that can be adopted in other states in the USA. It also seeks to build a reference point to current and future efforts, by researchers and authorities to mitigate global warming and the costs involved in mitigating GHGs in Massachusetts, as a result of increased unsafe residential heating methods. The findings will help scientists and authorities to deliberate on precautions and financial and safety measures to be taken in order to curb the effects of emission of unwanted CO2 within Massachusetts which will eventually lead to good health and economical expenditure on the residential heating system. Moreover, the information gathered during this research may be adopted by any interested parties, outside Massachusetts, for fact-checking and brain-storming the climatic conditions in their regions of interest.
