  • Kilowatt Hour (kWh)

    A unit of measuring electrical energy equal to 1,000 watts of power consumed over an hour.
  • LEDs

    Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology uses semi-conducting materials to convert electricity into light.
  • LEED

    The U.S. Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is a nationally accepted benchmark.
  • Medium-Efficiency Filter

    A particulate filter, usually in the 30–40% efficiency range when measured using the atmospheric dust spot test.
  • MERV

    Stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value.
  • Microwaves

    Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation; that is, they are waves of electrical and magnetic energy moving together through space.
  • Passive Solar

    A home-energy alternative or addition to gas and utility electric.
  • Pier Foundations

    Often used in hot, humid climates, a pier foundation lifts a house up off the ground reducing health hazards from direct soil contact.
  • Psychometric Chart

    A graph used to determine the moisture content and energy of air at different temperatures.
  • R-value

    How effective is your insulation?
  • Radiant Cooling

    Radiant cooling cools a floor or ceiling by absorbing the heat radiated from the rest of the room.
  • Radiant Heating

    Forced air heating is not the only option.
  • Rotary Core

    A slowly spinning wheel typically made of corrugated material (metal, plastic or treated paper) tightly stacked; used in some heat or energy recovery ventilators to transfer heat and moisture between two airstreams.
  • SEER

    Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER).
  • Sensible Recovery Efficiency (SRE)

    A measurement, that does not include latent heat recovery, used in determining the amount of energy passed between airstreams in a heat or energy recovery ventilator.
  • Sheathing

    Sheathing adds strength and wind resistance to house walls, and is now made in a variety of materials.
  • SIP or Structural Insulated Panel

    Structural insulated panels (SIPs) are high performance building panels used in floors, walls, and roofs for residential and light commercial buildings.
  • Solid-state lighting (SSL)

    Solid-state lighting (SSL) technology uses semi-conducting materials to convert electricity into light. Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are an example.
  • Thermographic Inspection

    Thermographic inspection measures surface temperatures using infrared light (light that is in the heat spectrum) to detect temperature variations of the building's "skin", showing warmer areas in lighter colors and cooler areas in darker colors.
  • Total Recovery Efficiency (TRE)

    A measurement that includes latent heat recovery, used in determining the amount of energy passed between airstreams in a heat or energy recovery ventilator.
