Increasing the energy efficiency of your home not only helps the environment by reducing the amount of energy used, it can also save you money by lowering your utility bill. The best way to make your home more energy efficient is to make sure you have enough insulation, such as foam or fiberglass, in your walls and attic.
If you’re building a new home, consider insulated concrete form (ICF) wall construction, which uses stackable foam blocks filled with concrete to achieve up to a 40 R-value in the walls.
