go green in your dream home with insulationProper insulation reduces heat flow through the home’s envelope, keeping heat in during winter and out in summer, and has a big impact on home energy bills and comfort. That is why today’s “Go Green” green building tip of the day is Insulate and save!

Fact:  Heating and air-conditioning systems require up to 43% of the average home’s total energy usage*!

Upgrading and improving the insulation envelope in your home will help save energy, money and improve the sustainability of your dream home. The amount of energy saved depends on the local climate; the living habits of your family; the size of your house; the type of fuel you use; and also on the type and efficiency of the heating and cooling systems installed.

Recent studies from the Harvard University School of Public Health estimated that 65 percent of American homes are under-insulated. If these homes were upgraded to a more recent model energy code, America could save more than 800 Trillion BTUs of energy each year, which translates into hundreds of thousands fewer tons of greenhouse gas and other harmful emissions released into the atmosphere.

Picacho Mountain is committed to the advancement of green building and development techniques.
