Energy efficiency actually benefits you most. You save money on bills and become less of a burden on the environment and the rest of us suffering from the consequences of severe weather patterns. Here’s how to make it possible and beautiful.
White Perrin House, above, offers energy efficient features. Wide windows, ensure a large amount of natural light and wall-to-wall timber increases insulation.
Let’s look at more energy efficient inspiration from this Butterfly Beach home in Montecito, California which has solar panels built into its roof.
It was built with huge picture windows that integrate indoor and outdoor spaces, but also lets natural light warm the home and cool it off.
Recessed and dimmable LED lighting is not only a super-cheap-money-saving solution—it looks good too.
And hey, how about this homeowners—invest in drought resistant gardens. Quit wasting our natural resources on useless shrubs. What’s the use? These cacti are equally as flattering and they’re cost effective too.
Still not sure where to begin? Here’s a cheat sheet of Federal Tax Credits for Consumer Energy Efficiency. And if you still need help implementing energy efficiency for your space, consult a designer.
