Mission Statement

Encourage consciousness and control of our carbon footprints
Provide sources of information to enhance energy efficiency in homes
Support technologies and planning efforts that address global environmental concerns
Educate home buyers and sellers to become aware of energy efficiency items

On a cool summer evening in the Adirondacks, the thought for this company and web site seemed to just bounce into my head like a  green apple falling from a tree. The hope for a better future for generations to come is sustained, and will only find success with support and cooperation from the community. We need to train and be trained to become better stewards of our environment.

My hope is that the real estate community will pay more attention to energy efficiency and advanced energy savings technologies. Only if such aspects of the home as energy usage and eco- friendly components are recognizable to buyers and sellers can we begin to truly analyze their contributions to value. LEED buildings are still few, and only with time and attention can we analyze the benefits to health of these cleaner environments for living.

There are many resources available to help in this effort. My mission is to make these more accessible and to address a number of questions on one site complete useful links. I hope to also encourage and support bold building industry leaders who have taken the time to become educated in new energy systems, and those who have been certified by the Building Performance Institute in home inspections.

With the storm damage which has occurred within the past  years locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, few doubt the effects of global warming. We may not be able to cure the problems overnight, but we can sharpen the turn and move in the right direction. If your home is where you want to start helping, and you want to lower energy costs while improving marketability in the future, consultation services are available from Global Keepers.
