Green Building & Energy Efficiency Links and Resources

Green Building Energy Savings is a compilation of useful information about building greener, cleaner, and more energy efficient homes. Our site is dedicated to educating the modern consumer as to the sustainable design choices available whenever they begin a home improvement or building project. For builders or contractors working on new construction, green techniques become even more important because they can be incorporated right into the base or skeletal structure of a residence from the very beginning.

Building Greener through Sustainable Design

The latest modern building techniques, when combined with the purchase of Energy Star® qualified appliances and building materials, leads to less pollution and less reliance on burning fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas. At the same time, these money-saving appliances, techniques, and materials can save the average homeowner thousands upon thousands of dollars in heating and cooling costs over the lifetime of their home.

Perhaps best of all, these types of home improvements and smart choices lead to environmental benefits that cannot be overstated. The reduction of greenhouse gases and heat emissions help reduce pollution and protect the environment. From the bottom of the water table all the way on up to the ozone layer, energy efficiency benefits our ecology and our planet.

Many Energy Star appliance choices come with substantial rebates and/or tax credits in addition to the overall savings on utility bills the average green residence invariably sees. Homes enforcing energy saving techniques, efficient appliances, and a tight building envelope will enjoy significant advantages over those without the benefit of such practices. The green-friendly links and important resources below are provided as a courtesy to our readers. Important government, state, and local programs exist to promote green building and energy efficient choices, but many are largely unknown. You are invited to explore the valuable information provided by these associations, as well as the money-saving ideas and recommendations contained therein.
