True, it ain’t sexy. Insulation is not colorful or plush. It doesn’t entertain (adults or the kids) and is a bit boring. Add in that the attic is not a fun place to hang out, and you’ve just convinced yourself to repaint and redecorate the bathroom instead.
United States households alone are responsible for 21% of the global warming pollution that occurs in the world. This is more than the entire global warming output of the United Kingdom. It is clear we are not doing a very good job at energy conservation. Yet energy-conscious families can reduce their emissions by two-thirds with some simple choices.
As more people around the world try to find more ways of reducing their carbon footprint, environmentally conscious homeowners are turning to ideas for the incorporation of green architecture into their existing homes. Sustainable architecture is based on the idea that the design of a building or home should have the least impact on the environment as possible. Green architecture therefore creates a cleaner living environment, while using cost effective energy saving building techniques.
