House of the Future

Analyze and Conclude


1. Which renewable energy sources did you use in your home? The renewable energy
sources that I used in my house was solar power for heating and air conditioning and hot water
and hydroelectric power for electricity.
2. What are the advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuels?
The advantages of using renewable energy sources instead of fossil fuel is that it does pollute
are air and it doesn’t use nonrenewable energy like coal, fossil fuel, and oil.
3. Which renewable energy sources did you not include in your designs? Why didn’t you
use them? The renewable energy sources that I didn’t use in my house was wind energy. The
reason I didn’t use wind energy was being it didn’t fit with the landscape and would have been
very noisy.
4. Do you think people in the future will have homes like the ones you designed? Why or
why not? I think that people in the future will have homes like this one because it is more
energy efficient and doesn’t pollute the air.
