What exactly classifies a home as an eco, or "green" home? My wife and I are wanting to purchase a home that is good on the environment, but we don't want to blow our budget. We would love to find one that is a reasonable price but still high-end economical.
Have you spoken with a real estate agent in your area? There are a lot of agents that know what other homes are using and their approximate energy use. Why don't you ask your friends and neighbors about their insulation as well. Word of mouth is a good way to go about finding things like that. http://www.northwestsprayfoam.ca/en/... more
