How building an energy efficient home will save you money.

Building houses in Jamaica typically blocks (bricks), mortar, steel, roofing. Because of our tropical climate, most persons build without insulation to protect against certain elements. While Jamaicans don't necessarily need to protect against the cold, the heat is becoming unbearable. 

Building green in Jamaica will cost a bit more but long term, it saves. If a house is built with insulation in the roof, that minimizes the heat that is disbursed in the building, hence decreases the need for high cost of cooling. 

Wall insulation also helps as most structures are built from concrete and concrete holds the heat during the days and releases it when the time is cooler.

What do you think about spending the extra cash to build green?
