Consumer’s Guide to Energy-Efficient and Healthy Homes

This consumer guide describes how to improve a home’s energy efficiency and indoor enviroSolar Panelnmental quality, which can help reduce heating and cooling costs, save energy, and improve occupants’ health and comfort levels. Adopting energy-efficiency measures can also reduce both a home’s carbon footprint and the nation’s overall greenhouse gas emissions. This guide summarizes how homeowners and renters can make their homes energy efficient and healthy. It provides links to websites, including those of federal agencies such as the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), for more detailed information on the different topics.

The information in this guide can be applied to both new construction and renovations. Although renters may be reluctant to undertake the more expensive energy-efficiency improvements discussed in this guide, this information can still help them discuss energy-efficiency measures with their landlords. This guide, however, does not cover systems needed for large multifamily buildings; information about such systems can be found at some of the websites cited in this guide.
