Energy efficient, non-toxic, healthy homes are the hottest trend in the building industry. Homebuilders are constructing green homes in astonishing numbers.

How does a home buyer who wants a green home know what to look for, what questions to ask a builder, which green home rating systems to trust, and what homes are on the market? Nationally recognized green-building expert Jerry Yudelson provides answers to some common areas of concern, including:
  • Energy-efficient home features.
  • Water conservation fixtures.
  • Non-toxic finishes.
  • Green products.
  • Healthy indoor air.

Drawing from the expertise of dozens of homebuilders, government officials and green home experts, Choosing Green deftly takes the reader through these considerations with easy-to-use tables, charts, maps, score sheets and checklists.

The book includes a glossary of green building terms, an extensive resource section and a list of homebuilders, green rating programs and financial incentives. This comprehensive book provides homebuyers with everything they will need to make a successful search for their own green home.
