Need advice on building an energy efficient house
Our home construction has started about 1 month ago in Florida. It is in a subdivision, on the water. We have designed the home with large overhangs ( i.e.wrap around porches) and huricane glass insulated low e solar windows. The house is designed to have a metal roofing system. Would this be efficient? What are your recommendations on other ways to make it efficient? What air conditioning (and heat) system do you recommend? All ideas and advice are welcome!
