According to the USDOE, 21% of U.S. carbon dioxide emissions are contributed by the residential sector. Indoor air pollutants in our homes can often be four to five times as high as outdoor levels of the same irritants. Green home design and building addresses these issues by creating homes that perform significantly better than conventional homes.
