Net Zero Homes of the Future
When we talk green, we’re talking energy efficiency. On this St. Patricks day, we are encouraging everyone to do more than dress green, but also take a moment to think about how you can live a greener life through your windows and doors! Curious how can you make that happen and how it will benefit you? Keep scrolling to find out!
Considering our homes reside on land that potentially once had trees, it’s becoming increasingly important to make them as eco-friendly as possible. One of the biggest steps you can take to living a greener life is by updating your home or by looking into passive housing for your new home build. Windows can be a hefty source of heat loss, which means you have to use more electricity to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Luckily, we have plenty of high efficiency options to get you started on your green journey!
What is a Passive House?
A Passive House is a design technique starting to take hold in British Columbia that takes heating efficiency to a whole
new level. The entire house is designed from the ground up to keep everything insulated to the point where heating and cooling costs are practically non-existent. These advanced methods are a good look into what the future of all housing could look like.
