In most homes in the southern United States, the level of insulation found is adequate for achieving an energy efficient home. However, air leakage and duct leakage are typically high, resulting in high energy bills, comfort problems, and poor indoor air quality.
The U.S. Department of Energy has announced it will invest up to $14million in R&D projects for energy efficient technologies designed to help reduce energy loads, save money and create a greener future.
