Energy Efficient And Green Homes by Ryan Somerville
A major new trend is green or energy efficient homes. They have more effective windows, insulation, heating and cooling systems, and building materials. The insulation is installed more carefully to cover all surfaces to keep heated air or cooled air from escaping. The windows use new technology to prevent heat from escaping in the winter and entering in the summer. The windows also stop ultraviolet light from coming into your house and damaging carpet and furniture. The heating and cooling sytems use less power to run while doing the same amount of work. The building is made tighter to keep air from escaping or coming into the house. There are other things including these in energy efficient homes to save energy, help prevent "global warming," and help protect the Earth.
