Energy efficiency is high on homeowners’ wish lists

“Energy efficiency is a gigantic subject,” says John Abrams, founder and president of South Mountain Co., a design/build firm in West Tisbury, Mass. “In the last couple of years there has been a staggering change in what people are asking for. We’ve been doing this for the last 30 years and have been pushing our clients further and further, sometimes with very limited success. Now they’re pushing us and challenging us to do stuff that’s not easy to do. They’re asking for homes that don’t use energy but produce it. Composting toilets in a million-dollar house. Pretty good stuff. It’s way beyond windows for us.”
