Green Gab Podcast | Being Comfortable in Your Home
- commentary on the Green Gab Podcast Zip Up the Coat of Your Home – Energy Efficiency Basics, now on iTunes too
Our new home has a HERS (Home Energy Rating System) Index rating (yay!). As we toured homes in search of ours, many of the sales people would proudly point out the HERS rating for the home, yet did not know how to explain how that would affect our living experience in that home.
That HERS index is a measure of the energy efficiency of a home and a way for us to understand what we were getting in a home besides what we could see. For us, it was a way to assess our potential comfort in a home. This same tool can be used for any home and is a starting point for understanding of the basics of energy efficiency for your comfort in your home.
To learn more about the basics of energy efficiency for your home, check out the blog Being Comfortable in Your Home.
Every week on iTunes and The Green Gab Podcast, get the gab with us as we share what we’ve done, as well as tips for greening up your home, your job, your family and your life!
