Energy Efficiency

According to the Department of Energy, homes consume 22% of the energy produced annually in the United States.

Energy efficiency affects the single largest on-going cost of owning a home. Appliances, light fixtures, heating and air conditioning have all seen significant improvement in efficiency in recent years. Energy efficiency is also about construction techniques and materials such as insulation and types of windows. When a home is built with greater insulation and fewer opportunities for air leaks, it may be possible to install smaller heating and air conditioning units, resulting is smaller utility bills.

It may also be logical to evaluate alternative energy sources such as solar, wind and geo-thermal as these options become more popular and cost-effective.
