This media center for the Cool Energy House
has been designed for editors, writers and publishers. It offers in text, photos, videos and assorted ancillary links the entire Cool Energy House project story – from inception to completion.
The Cool Energy House is a Building America supported project with one focus – demonstrate the tools used and the paths taken to acceive cost-effective, integrated energy systems that dramatically reduce annual energy use and peak energy loads in existing homes -- while also improving overall building quality, comfort, safety and durability.
In addition, products from select sponsors of the Cool Energy House that effectively and affordably integrated into the energy-optimized retrofit design are highlighted with descriptions of their contribution to the project goals. There are also select performance analysis papers done by the Steven Winter Group’s Building America Team, Consortium for Advanced Residential Buildings (CARB), that describe in detail the performance of certain upgrades.
