Paul Hansen

“Home performance” is the science and practice of building and improving homes to make them as comfortable, safe, resource efficient and durable as possible. A home that performs well is one that is warm, dry, uses resources efficiently and is affordable to heat and maintain. Good home performance depends on lots of things interacting well – the design of a house, the materials it is built from, the systems and appliances that use energy and water and deal with waste, and the habits and choices of the occupants”

maybe tag something to the first sentence, ‘and that the house fits well within its natural environment’?
