This book provides vital information that will empower you as an individual to make informed decisions about saving large amounts of money on energy use for the heating or cooling of your home or other occupied buildings that you may own. Amazingly, if you finance the building of your new home or conversion of your older home to SEE standards, your monetary savings from using less energy will in most cases more than cover any costs to meet the SEE standard. Simple yet compelling arguments are made for how you can save money today and even greater amounts in the future, as home heating and cooling energy costs continue their rise. Not only will you save money, but you will also create jobs, promote local economic growth, reduce energy usage and its resultant pollution, slow climate changes, help cutback on foreign energy dependence, save even more money in the future, and insure a long-term vibrant economy both locally and globally. If you are not a home or building owner, but are interested in job creation, both short-term & long-term economic vitality, pollution & the environment, and foreign energy dependence; you also need to know what this book presents. The “SEE” movement needs to begin in earnest now!
