ProudGreenHome's top 10 December articles
Solar power for homes, Passive House concepts and the tiny house movement were among the top 10 most-read articles on ProudGreenHome in December.
The single most-read article was the ever-popular 3 ways to generate electricity at home. Next up was new appliance finishes replacing stainless steel. The Tumbleweed Tiny House green workshop set for Seattle, and the declining cost of solar energy were also big draws.
Many readers watched the Wolf convection steam oven video that was part of the original product review on ProudGreenHome. And many read about a zero net energy home display and modular classroom. Others turned to the photo gallery for the Tumbleweed Tiny House workshop, and rounding out the top ten was an article on Carrier launching the most energy efficient heat pump on the market.
The most-read blog was on the pros and cons of insulated concrete form, with building a rustic home with cordwood construction coming in a close second, and structural insulated panels as an efficient building alternative coming in third. A blog on how to install a drip edge on your roof drew interest, and a fun piece on happy holidays Gangnam Style was also in the top five.
Among videos, the grassy indoor turf installation at Cornellattracted attention, along with a Greenbuild video interview with LG Electronics. Coming in third among videos was the Active House USA video with Matt Belcher, project manager for Active House USA and principal with Verdatek Solutions, discussing how to build a green home. Also from Greenbuild was a video with the Big Ass Fan Co. and another with Osram Sylvania talking about the latest in energy-efficient lighting.
