The Importance of Performance.
We know we don’t have to tell you this, but energy is expensive. And most of the energy we consume is an environmental burden. A high performance home, in addition to creating a healthy, comfortable environment, delivers the added benefit of gulping less energy. (Saving lucky homeowners more money.)
