Your High Performance Home Lecture Series

Cut your Electric bills by 30% on your existing home, or up to 70% on your newly built home while increasing the indoor air quality and comfort level and reap the financial benefits in three to five years.  Build a home that will last 100 years with minimal maintenance, maximum utility, and reduced intrusion on the landscape.  These benefits are readily achievable.  Learn about materials, equipment and specifications for your builder to reduce energy usage, keep toxic chemicals out and enhance your home's durability and resistance to weather.  Know the benefits of alternative structural systems such as ICF's, metal framing and Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs).  Learn critical specifications for your air-conditioning system, things you should demand from your contractor and more.
