Triangle of Energy Savings: Step three
Eco Houses of Vermont, LLC
Use fossil fuel systems as
sparingly as possible
Here is where the whole story actually begins.
We want to reduce our use of fossil fuels.
We are not advocating stopping using all fuels which give off CO2
or other greenhouse gasses. Just reducing them!
Many of our designs incorporate high efficiency propane/natural gas tankless
The third piece of our Energy Triangle tells us that if we need to use systems
which produce CO2 that we size these units to have as small an impact as is
To decrease our dependence on foreign sources of fuel.
To decrease our output of green house gasses which are causing climate change.
To reduce the cost of maintaining our homes.
