Energy Efficiency: A Golden Opportunity – Construction Today
(October 12, 2016)
Energy efficient construction is surging due to increased consumer awareness and interest in its direct benefits and building codes and standards across the nation being “tightened markedly.” One stand-out opportunity to improve a structure’s energy is insulation. Non-building professionals may not fully understand the importance of using high-quality insulation, installed properly, for maximum impact.
