Check out this seven minute overview of the Building Envelope (done in 2010).
The Department of Energy and Energy Star have indicated that sealing and insulating the envelope of your home (walls, ceilings, windows, doors and floors) is the most cost effective way to improve energy efficiency.
Another reason to think about the building envelope. Resale! Home buyers are looking for ways to save on their investment. And if they have the option of choosing a home that has been well cared for and is more energy efficient which home do you think they would choose (all other things being equal).
For more information on how you can improve and save on energy costs visit. www.energystar.gov
Welcome to winter - Stay Warm!

Home Ownership Matters - Don’t let Congress take away your Home Interest Deductions!
Right now, there is a discussion going on in Congress that could have a huge impact on your home and your wallet.
How? Congress is considering eliminating income tax deductions for our homes.
If some lawmakers in Congress have it their way, we could see big changes not only to federal income tax deductions for mortgage interest and property taxes, but also a change to the homeowner’s capital gains exemption. What that means is that current and future homeowners would pay more taxes every year!
In these tough times, we can’t afford to lose important deductions. By signing our petition and sending a letter to your representative, you cantell Congress to keep our home interest deductions intact.
