A home is more than just shelter: homes are the most important places in our lives. So, doesn’t it make sense that it should be as healthy, safe, and comfortable as possible? With so many different types of homes to choose from, selecting the right type of home for your lifestyle is important.  Some types of homes may require different considerations when it comes to energy efficiency. You may be wondering how to improve the efficiency of an apartment, manufactured home, or home you don't own, or you may be considering a home with unique design characteristics, such as a log home or earth-sheltered home.

Manufactured homes are one type of home that may require special considerations for energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies.
