Energy Dept. Creates Green Building Resource

The U.S. Department of Energy is now offering an online tool designed to provide building professionals with free building science and energy-efficiency information.

The new Building America Solution Center provides a user-friendly interface that offers multiple options for accessing hundreds of high-performance topics, ranging from air sealing and insulation to HVAC components, walls and windows. Resources include contracting documents or specifications, step-by-step installation guidance, computer-aided design drawings, training videos, codes and standards and reference libraries.

Users can access content in several ways, including the ENERGY STAR checklists, alphabetical lists, a house diagram with selectable components and an information map.
