Energy Efficient Homes
        The ideal energy efficient building retains the best environment for living while minimizing the consumption and waste of energy. © Crook 2006                The biggest source of clean cheap energy is energy not used. R. Muller, Foreign Policy, Nov 2008                If you don’t understand energy efficient technology it’s probably because it’s based on principles of thermodynamics, physics, and rocket science. © Crook 2010                When you install an alternative energy system without first reducing your building’s demand for energy you ‘re still wasting energy and foregoing comfort--You've put the cart before the horse. © Crook 2011                An energy efficient building is always "Green" but a green buildings isn't always energy efficient. © Crook 2009                "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction", Sir Isaac Newton's "Action-Reaction Law", 1687                The transfer of heat between objects can never be stopped: it can only be slowed down. © Crook 2008                It's always easier to get into something than it is to get out.                Clean coal refers to coal with less particulants/pollutants.

With soaring energy costs in the country, the question is being asked more and more if the energy efficiency of a home should be taken into consideration in the appraisal process?  The answer is yes.  As energy costs rise, the value of a home that is more energy efficient than an average, conventionally built home should receive a higher valuation.  And that is just where the industry is beginning to turn, as fewer people can afford to pay two mortgages—one to the bank and one to the utility company. Energy Star Homes The Energy Star program for homes is a government based organization, dedicated to helping consumers save money and the environment.  The […]
