Energy-efficient, low-carbon homes aren't just better for the earth, they are also better prepared to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
We can no longer afford to be profligate about our use of finite natural resources especially fossil fuels. We have a moral obligation to future generations to do everything we can to reduce carbon emissions. And because of the long service life of our work, we need to think ahead and anticipate how each home we work on will meet occupants' energy need twenty, thirty, even fifty years from now. Homes that operate efficiently are able to do more with less and are also better able to withstand disruptions in critical services.
