According to the Energy Information Administration, nearly one-third of households experience some type of energy insecurity over the course of a year. Energy insecurity describes the interplay of the physical conditions of housing, household energy expenditures and energy-related coping strategies. It disproportionately impacts low-income households as they pay higher proportions of their income to electric and gas bills and will often set thermostats to unsafe levels to reduce energy costs.
This is why energy efficient construction practices are so important for providing safe, comfortable and cost-effective housing options. Come to this webinar to gain insight into energy efficient construction practices, including how to maximize energy efficiency while keeping costs in check. Learn the role of Home Energy Raters in the design and construction process and see the specifications for homes that are achieving varying levels of energy efficiency. Finally, you will see what it takes to achieve a net-zero home—one that produces as much energy as it uses on an annual basis.
