the risk of making piecemeal changes to an older home's energy efficiency, such as one-off upgrades to the heating system, or home humidification
how home flipping can be a detriment to the life of the building
the benefits of a holistic, scientific approach to remodeling
how deep energy retrofits can improve a home's value, indoor environment, and building health
