I’m not normally a grumpy architect, but when I am it is usually because of something on this list.
1. If your house is adequately insulated there should be little temperature differential between the ceiling and the floor.
2. “Adequately” differs from code. Remember, a house built to code is the worst house you can legally build.
3. If you choose not to build an Energy-Star-certified home, please give your poor starving architect the $2,000 (the value of the Energy StarLabeling system sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy for labeling the most energy-efficient products on the market; applies to a wide range of products, from computers and office equipment to refrigerators and air conditioners. incentive) that you obviously have to spare.
