Monitors that track energy flows, heat recovery systems, and a lot of rain water retention.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design)
Family Project, which promotes buildings that meet the strict requirements of energy efficiency, resource efficiency and health promotion for household occupants.
The family room has a fake fireplace because there is too much heat escaping from the chimney.

The windowsill is particularly wide due to additional insulation on the exterior walls. Other energy-
Fou\'home\'s savings include a heat recovery system that increases the water temperature into the house by 10 degrees before the water reaches the water heater, and there is a lot of rain in the yard, instead of running to the nearby Concord River.
