The National Association of Home Builders called on the U.S. Congress to ensure that legislation to make homes more energy efficient focuses on measures that provide the greatest environmental benefit without putting housing affordability at risk.

Dwight "Sonny" Richardson, NAHB Construction, Codes, and Standards Committee Chair, made recommendations to the House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment when he recently testified at a hearing on the American Clean Energy Security Act.

Richardson said that legislation must be flexible and include not just the savings achieved from insulated doors, windows, and wall cavities, but also energy-efficient heating and air-conditioning systems – or a combination of insulation and appliance requirements.

Richardson also said that Congress should "extend, or make permanent" the tax credits passed earlier this year that incentivize the purchase of energy-efficient windows, additional insulation and other improvements in existing homes.

Last, Richardson urged Congress to embrace current and future green building policies.
