|What is the Cool Energy House?
The Cool Energy House is a deep-energy remodel sponsored in part by the Department of Energy’s Building America program and presented as an educational tour for builders, remodelers and the general public. Recently completed in Windermere, Florida, as part of the 2012 International Home Builders Show, the show house and this online education tour will provide contractors and homeowners a cost/benefit approach to building healthy, comfortable and energy-efficient homes.
The U.S. Department of Energy’s Building America program is focused on developing innovative, real-world solutions that achieve significant energy and cost savings for homeowners and builders. More than 30 million homes are in “cooling climates,” where the challenges of high temperatures and humidity present huge opportunities for energy efficient upgrades. This online tour will demonstrate how to use the information and tools provided by the Building America program to analyze, design and retrofit a home for peak-energy performance.
