Energy Efficient Homes in Louisiana


May 2010 Edition

This book helps the homeowner understand that if his home is energy efficient; not only will they benefit by lower energy bills, but the offshoot of using less energy will be a healthier environment, and a longer time for their family to be able to utilize present energy resources.

Energy conservation directly benefits Louisiana with less direct energy costs. On an individual basis, residential housing lasts approximately 45 years. Therefore, nominal costs for installing and using more energy efficient construction techniques, materials and, appliances (such as Energy Star appliances) when a customer builds or restores a house will be paid back many, many times over the life of the house.
