17% of Homes built in 2008 met ENERGY STAR criteria

by

II mentioned earlier that ENERGY STAR had passed the million home mark. I was reminded in Friday’s USA Today that 17% of homes built in 2008 qualified. This is a big step in the right direction. As Maria Vargas of the U.S. EPA says in the article, “They are better homes,” with more efficient windows, lighting, appliances, insulation, heating and cooling. All elements that can be improved in existing homes, too!  (Don’t just guess, though.  Start with a comprehensive energy audit.)

Thanks,
Mike
