The Building America Program has been established by the United States Department of Energy, which collaborates with consultants to help builders build more efficient homes. The general concept behind it is a mission to see how much we approve the performance of a home without adding to the cost.


The first and probably most obvious way is to make a house that would not use as much energy for people to live in and be comfortable. In Texas, for example, we are talking about air conditioning as the big barrier. I have worked 15 years monitoring every home that I have built on a monthly basis and what I learned was that if you build a proper home in North Central Texas, heating is almost unnecessary. Cooling is the only problem that we have.
