As more homes and businesses go up across the U.S., there has been a focus (especially in recent years) of constructing more energy-efficient residences and offices.
While other countries have been at the forefront of building more energy-efficient homes and businesses, the U.S. has lagged behind at times. That said it doesn’t mean there is no effort or hope moving forward.
Building energy-efficient homes, apartments, condos, offices, stores etc. does both the constructor and the habitant good.
For the constructor, they can oftentimes work with cheaper-priced goods (that doesn’t mean they are any less productive or safe); meantime, the homeowner or business owner paying for the construction materials and services saves money in the long run too.

Among some examples where building to last with an eye on cheaper sustainable energy products and services along with saving money for the long haul can be beneficial:
Whether you are currently constructing a new home or office or about to reside in one, think about how your efforts to be more green, especially energy-efficient, can be a win-win for you and the environment.
