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. What does "clean coal" and "pork the other white meat have in common? Both are half-truths and both have the propensity to make you sick.


What is going green

Posted 06/14/2011 by Susan Walker

Kathy Orr, is my favorite meteorologist. She really knows her stuff and I enjoy hearing her Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall predictions as each season is starting to change. This year she predicted a very warm Spring and a hot Summer, with lots of 90 degree temperatures, even in the Springtime. Her predictions are based on scientific evidence and analysis, not superstition. This is important to me, as in my studies and in my life, I appreciate good research that leads to wise decisions, but more about that later.

I have a volunteer job at a farm that is a no-kill animal rescue facility. I am outside three or more days a week from early in the morning to past noontime, so this year has been a doozey. The weather is hard on all of us volunteers and even harder on the animals. When I get home I am so appreciative of the environment.

Feel comfortable in your environment

I am of retirement age, which means I cannot tolerate a lot of heat and humidity. The climate inside my house is ALWAYS COMFORTABLE. I feel refreshed on the hot days and warm and toasty on the cold days. There are no drafts and no deviations in temperature when I go from room to room. The house is constructed so that unless I am paying attention, I do not hear or notice what is happening outside. And the heating and cooling bills (for seniors this is very important) are ¼ of what one would expect to pay.

Hey, at my age I’ve fought enough battles that I’d love to keep to myself, but that would go against the “green” philosophy. We are all on this planet, so we all have the responsibility to keep it clean and not mess it up. So, I’M SHARING.

Beware of an energy scam

My suggestions are: Look for an individual or team who knows what they are doing. They will have done research, know the scientific principals involved in energy efficient technology, (green building), and will have the experience in building energy efficiently – the experience that comes with years of working in this business, and be able to assess your living space and tell you what works – no band aids. Band aids eventually make the problem worse. Remember the story of the little boy from Holland, who was trying to save the town by putting his fingers in the leading dam. The pressure would not hold, and the whole dyke burst.

It’s worth it to Go Green

As stated, energy efficienct, green technology is based on scientific evidence and analysis, not superstition or plagiarism. Beware of the guys out there that do voodoo, and the shell game. This is your home or business we are talkin’ about here. Use your intelligence, educate yourself, do your homework, find out how much experience they have, how they know what they know, and ask questions about the principles of energy efficiency until you get answers. The rewards of COMFORT and PEACE OF MIND are, as they say priceless”. GO GREEN!!!!
