If you are planning on building a green home and wish to know what is involved and how to go about it, look no further; our book and video are precisely what you are looking for. However, if you're not planning on building a new home but are interested in learning about green homes or greening your own home and creating a more energy-efficient, healthier home environment, you're also in luck.
Three years ago, we thought that green homes were houses with solar panels and geo-thermal heat and air units that cost a lot more than traditional homes. Our home today has neither of these items, yet it has been designated a LEED Silver Project Profile and Energy Star Qualified Home, one of only nine homes showcased as examples of green homes by the U.S. Green Building Council, the nation's leading entity for green design and construction. Our utility bills decreased 70% in contrast to our former home, and the lion's share of maintenance and upkeep expenses have disappeared.
By learning about green homes, you'll become empowered to make intelligent, informed decisions when it comes to making your home a healthier, energy efficient, more comfortable dwelling. Green homes are probably not what you think they are. The good news is that understanding green homes isn't rocket science. The key to understanding green homes is to understand them in their entirety. Green homes are all about choices and relationships, and how various systems and products work together to produce a new way of living.
Our book and DVD share our real-life experience and use non-technical, simple English to provide you with a solid understanding of green homes. The rules have changed, and with the advent of all of the new green technologies, products and systems now available to elevate our quality of life, you owe it to yourself to learn about green homes. You'll be glad you did.
