What do you get in an Energy Efficient home?

There are lots of things you can do to make your house more energy efficient, and these days builders are using energy efficient products in a variety of ways.Energy Efficent Home in Clayton
The House in question is 154 Sicily Drive in Clayton, NC 27527. The home uses a Radiant Barrier Insulation System. Aluminum foil-based Radiant Barrier Insulation is a great innovation that helps keep heat in during the winter and heat out during the summer. It was originally developed by NASA.

A Sealed Crawlspace has many benefits, not only does it trap the air you have heated or cooled and keep it in the house it also keeps allergens and moisture and insects out of the house. Imagine what a normal crawl space feels like in the summer and how much energy is needed to take that moisture soaked air and pull it into the HVAC system and cool it down. With a sealed crawl the air is coming from the house and is actually cooled in the crawl space as well.

Tankless Water HeaterA Tankless Water Heater is very common these days. It basically means you have hot water on demand, no tank to heat constantly,you see them all the time in Europe. So you don't run out of hot water and you don’t have a water tank taking up room plus the risk of the risk of them breaking

This  house also has features such as

Air Sealed House & Ducts

Low E Windows

I know, I know. Go green.  Sure, sure. 

I see "Energy Efficient" all around.  What I don't see is "Cost Effective".

Yet!

I agree with Lenn - is there a savings or why not if it is efficient?
