Passive House Design
With extremely high standards and regulations, Passive homes are the fore-runners in the energy efficient construction realm.
What is Net Zero?
If you want to build a super energy efficient home with more window area, framing beautiful views and bringing natural daylight inside, you can set a more reasonable building enclosure performance standard. Investing a little more in heating equipment and possibly additional renewable energy sources can achieve zero energy use. Creating an energy efficient home is all about finding a balance between budget and performance levels and seeding hope for the future through dedicated action today.
Passive Solar Concept
Passive Solar design utilizes solar power exclusively. The home is created specifically to collect, store, and distribute solar energy in the form of heat in the winter and reflect solar heat in the summer. With this type of building technology, a primary principal is to build the home with southern exposure, maximizing the natural benefits of sunlight.
