Home Is Where the Health Is

Home Is Where the Health Is

The American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has been fighting the good fight making buildings more efficient, healthy, comfortable, and sustainable since the 1980s. Building Performance Journal (formerly Home Energy) has been reporting on their research for as long. The magazine staff has published The Grapevine, a daily newsletter at the Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings, a biannual event that takes place at Asilomer State Park in Pacific Grove, California. We hope to do that this coming August, depending at least in part how we all respond to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. 

Our friend Jen Amman, ACEEE's Buildings Program Senior Fellow, answers the question, "How to we make our homes energy efficient during social distancing." She offers some practical advice that has proven to work. A lot of us will be spending a lot of time at home for the next... while. May as well use some of it to lessen the burden of our utilities bills, give our families a healthy place to shelter, and do our part to create a more sustainable future for everyone.
