Even with improved building codes and more energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, the average new home in New England uses over $3,000 in energy.1 But new homes today can do better.
There are many options to consider when designing and building a new energy-efficient house. Recent improvements in building materials and construction techniques make it easy to integrate energy efficiency into your home’s design while improving comfort, health and aesthetics.
