The Home Buyer's Guide to Good Green Homes
By (author) Jerry Yudelson
Choosing Green by Jerry Yudelson
Book DescriptionEnergy efficient, non-toxic, healthy homes are the hottest trend in the building industry. Homebuilders are constructing green homes in astonishing numbers -- nearly 200,000 in the U.S. alone in 2006. How does a home buyer who wants a green home know what to look for, what questions to ask a builder, which green home rating systems to trust, and what homes are on the market? Nationally recognised green-building expert Jerry Yudelson provides answers to some common areas of concern, including: Energy-efficient home features; Water conservation fixtures; Non-toxic finishes; Green products; Healthy indoor air. Drawing from the expertise of dozens of homebuilders, government officials and green-home experts, this book deftly takes the reader through these considerations with easy-to-use tables, charts, maps, score sheets and checklists. The book includes a glossary of green building terms, an extensive resource section and a list of homebuilders, green-rating programs and financial incentives. This comprehensive book provides homebuyers with everything they will need to make a successful search for their own green home.
