Energy Efficient Homes vs Conventional Homes -
The Look & Design Part
Most people tend to think that an energy efficient home
has got to look radically different than a regular home. Say
with solar panels, wind mills, geothermal heating and
cutting-edge "green" design.
But the fact is, many of these homes look not too different
from a regular home.
Energy efficient homes can be of any style or design. They
can also use conventional building materials, but the
difference is in how these materials are used.
Solar panels, windmills and geothermal sources can
generate 40-80% of your home energy needs.
This is where energy efficiency can make all the difference
by solving two major needs: (1) saving on your electric bill
and (2) saving the environment.
