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. ○ Clean coal when burned, unless SEQUESTRATED spews CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) into the atmosphere causing pollution.

Energy Crisis- Part 2

Posted 06/10/2011 by Dennis Crook

The average cost of heating a home for the winter in 2008 was $1000-$2500, depending on the size of the structure.  However, for homes that use heating oil or propane, the winter energy bill can be nearly double the average.

And there seems to be no end in sight to the rising energy costs.  In fact, energy costs have increased by an average of 2 to 2.5% annually over the past 50 years.

You may be one of the lucky ones who had managed to pay this winter’s heating bills. However, just how far can you stretch your budget next winter?

Now is the time to take stock of your home’s energy efficiency. A home energy audit/evaluation followed by energy saving improvements will eliminate those areas were your home (or building) is losing energy to the outside environment.

In most cases, you can fix quite a few problems on your own.  By fixing the “Low hanging fruit”, (the basic improvements) it will pay off big in savings on your home energy costs. With monthly energy bills for some as high as a thousand dollars or more a month, even a modest 30 percent savings can mean the difference between having energy or facing shutoffs.
