If you’re not an architect or a home contractor, the phrase “sustainable design” may leave you scratching your head. What does it mean, and how does it relate to you, as a homeowner? According to the U.S. General Services Administration, “Sustainable design seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and the health and comfort of building occupants, thereby improving building performance.”
If you’re interested in making your home “greener” and more energy efficient – and what homeowner isn’t? – you should be paying attention to sustainable design.
If you’re not sure where to begin, a step in the right direction is to choose an energy efficient insulation for your home, such as Icynene spray foam insulation.
