The creation the technical drawings, plans and blueprints used in construction. Drafts include details of building projects, such as specification of dimensions and materials.
Energy-Efficient Homes are highly rated in terms of their structure and heating, cooling and hot water systems. They utilize less fuel and cost less to operate based on their square footage. The US Department of Energy has created a national rating system called ‘The Home Energy Score’ that takes all of these aspects into consideration, to decipher if a home can use energy improvement. If you’re planning on building a new home, it’s worth considering investing in energy efficiency. If you have an existing home, we recommend a home energy assessment. This will help you understand how your home uses energy and what will be the best way to reduce energy and cut costs.
