Houston has a tough climate for energy conservation. Learn from the design side and the construction side of real methods to keep your homes comfortable in the context of affordability, safety and sustainability. With a focus on the building envelope and the equipment inside, we will hear from an engineer and an HVAC installer that have real know-how and experience with Houston climate challenges, and not only with new projects. We will hear about an "extreme makeover" residential project that will detail the host of retrofit techniques that changed an energy "hog" home to a high performer.

Ultimately, they foster a happier and healthier workplace for employees. The Green Building Resource Center hosts periodic programs to educate the public about green building practices.
