It’s the energy. 40% of all energy consumption in America goes to heating and cooling buildings. Transportation is a distant second at 30%.
Thanks to lithium ion batteries, hybrids—electric vehicles with gasoline back-up—have arrived. As the transportation sector begins to compete with the housing industry for electricity, housing utility costs will increase significantly.
What will we do when the cost of heating and cooling our homes triples? We could just live in houses that are 1/3 the size…or we can build more efficient homes.
We can’t truly be Green until we focus on energy.
It’s more energy efficient
It saves significantly more energy (heating and air-conditioning) usage
It’s more durable
It controls water, heat & ultraviolet light
It’s more comfortable
It’s a tight enclosure with efficient windows, good insulation and smart air movement
