Q&A: What "shade of green" works for you?

When all is said and done and our new eco-friendly home is finished, I want anyone who visits our home to feel physically comfortable - not too hot, not too cold, but just right so that they’re not fixated on adjusting the temperature or scratching at their skin because the air is too dry.

The decisions we make about which comfort systems to install and the way we construct the skeleton of our home will ultimately have a big impact on our overall comfort level. My goal in this project is to balance being comfortable with sustainability by using comfort systems and construction methods that maximize our home’s use of its natural surroundings, and that minimize our use of fossil fuels or other non-renewable energy.

One item that’s really important to me in this project is balancing the eco-friendly aspects our new home with a good quality of indoor comfort, but not sacrificing either. What would you do if you were in my shoes? Let us know!
