Ode to Efficiency
The cellulose was blown in the attic with care
In hopes a cold winter soon would be there
The leaks and the cracks and the holes are all foamed
Plugging up spaces where mice once roamed
Insulated basement walls keep in the heat
Making floors toasty warm for kids stocking feet
Air in the home is fresh, healthy, and clean
A Heat Recovery Ventilator is a wonderful machine
The walls are warm to the touch and quiet inside
Because in these thick walls dense packed cellulose resides
Solar panels on the roof harness the sun
And the right orientation means fuel use is next to none
Whether new or old or big or small
An energy efficient home has it all
They are healthy and safe and easy to heat
With a level of comfort that can’t be beat
A low carbon footprint is good for the Earth
And is the very best way to spread holiday mirth
So this holiday season let’s all do our part
Have an energy audit to see where to start
If you’re building a new home and want it just right
Make sure it’s well insulated and very air tight
For these are the keys to a comfortable home
That is healthy and safe for families to roam
With that we will end this and turn off the light
An efficient home for all
And to all a good night
