  Did you know geodesic means "earth-dividing"? These domes can add up to a 30 percent to 50 percent heating and/or cooling savings.

Heating and cooling the home becomes more efficient due to the fact that there are fewer (even no) corners where heat may be trapped, and there is less surface area per square foot of living space = less heat loss.
