Save energy save world

By using low -tech and pragmatic techniques we can maximize your new home's efficiency. Oru Bose, a sustainable-design architect in Santa Fe, N.M. says

“Doing simple things could drastically reduce your energy costs, by 40%."

For example, control heat, air and moisture leakage by sealing windows and doors. Insulate the garage, attic and basement with natural, nontoxic materials like reclaimed blue jeans. Protect windows from sunrays with large overhangs and double-pane glass.
Next, consider renewable energy sources like solar electric systems, compact wind turbines and geothermal heat pumps to help power your home.
