Net Zero Homes
Zero Energy Homes are the Ultimate Energy Efficient Homes
Anyone can have a net zero home. A net zero home is a regular grid-tied home that is so air-tight, well insulated, and energy efficient that it produces as much renewable energy as it consumes over the course of a year, leaving the occupants with a net zero energy bill, and a carbon-free home.
A zero energy home is not just a “green home” or a home with solar panels. A zero energy home combines advanced design and superior building systems with energy efficiency and on-site solar panels to produce a better home. Zero energy homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable homes that are affordable to live in.
Our Comfort Specialists are trained Zero Energy Experts. Many solar-only companies simply want to sell you the most solar panels. We take a holistic approach and look at the health of your entire home. We start by checking your home’s insulation plus reduce excessive leaks of heat or cooling from your living structure. When you add insulation, fix leaky window frames, stop excessive door leakage, and make sure your duct work is sealed, you are taking valuable steps and basic, inexpensive measures for saving energy and money.
We find that many times, through rebates and tax incentives, we’re able to replace your aging HVAC system and install solar for less than a typical solar install. There are many components to creating a net zero home. Contact us today for a zero cost in-home consultation and be on your way to net zero living!
