Storm doors with low-E glass offer energy efficiency in winter by reducing leaks and providing “dead space” between your entry door and cold outside air. Screens (sometimes removable) provide summer ventilation.
Technological advances in home-energy monitoring and management mean you can easily see how and when your home uses the most energy, then set controls to maximize efficiency.

Whole-house fans cool and ventilate without air conditioning, using the basic concept that heat rises. As hot air is released through attic vents, cool air is pulled inside through open windows.
Extremely durable and recyclable, reflective metal roofs are among the best for energy efficiency.
