Guidelines

This community is dedicated to everyday people wanting to make their homes better and more energy-efficient places to live. Our mission is to amplify the collective knowledge base of the homeowner network by offering a space for sharing resources, ideas, and knowledge on energy-efficient remodeling.

This community is for informational and educational purposes, and is not to be used for promotional purposes. Content and comments should be geared towards homeowners and renters interested in saving energy.

Visitors can read all the content, but only Members can post or comment. Anyone with an interest in home energy efficiency can apply for a free membership. Each Member has their own page where their activities are consolidated. Membership can be suspended at any time for non-adherence with these guidelines or Terms of Service.

Here are some guidelines for engaging with the community in the spirit of openness, transparency, and collaboration:

PLEASE DO:
1. Fill out your profile. Post a picture. Smile!

2. Join the conversation. Share your ideas with the community. But, please stay on the topic of home energy.
3. Read and add comments to others' discussion posts.
4. Invite your friends to join in.
5. Treat others with respect.
6. Quote something you find interesting: You may quote copyrighted work but the quote should involve an excerpt, not the whole article. Make sure to always give attribution and a link to the source.
