Homeowners are always looking for ways to save money on energy bills and be more environmentally conscious. A net-zero home is one way to accomplish both of those things. Net-zero is an enviromentally friendly term used to describe a building or city that produces as much renewable energy as it consumes.
Achieving net-zero status requires careful planning and design, but the benefits are significant. Not only does it reduce the carbon footprint of your home, but it also reduces reliance on fossil fuels, making the environment more sustainable in the long term. Net-zero homes are up to 80% more energy-efficient than typical new homes and produce as much clean energy as they consume.

Passive House (Passivhaus) is considered to be the most rigorous voluntary energy-based standard in the design and construction industry today.
Climate change is the challenge of our generation. Buildings consume up to 40 percent of global energy use and contribute up to 30 percent of annual global greenhouse gas emissions. They are a key piece of the puzzle towards a low-carbon future.
Passive House (Passivhaus) buildings consume up to 90 percent less heating and cooling energy than conventional buildings. Applicable to almost any building type or design, the Passive House high-performance building standard is the only internationally recognized, proven, science-based energy standard in construction. Certification ensures that designers and consultants are expertly qualified to design buildings to meet the standard.
The benefits of employing the Passive House standard include fine-tuned control over indoor air quality and temperature with simple to use and durable systems, making them extremely quiet and comfortable throughout the changing seasons. The reductions in operating costs quickly make up any additional costs associated with construction, and the reduced carbon emissions provide priceless peace of mind. Passive House is at the foundation of how we build better. It’s how we feel better.

Renewable energy is clean, efficient, and can be generated right at home. It’s also an important part of the solution to climate change. As our demand for energy continues to grow, it is becoming increasingly important to find clean, efficient sources of energy. Fortunately, renewable sources of energy are growing more prevalent every day.
As anyone who has ever received a utility bill knows, energy can be expensive. As the world becomes increasingly reliant on electricity, the demand for energy is only going to go up. Fortunately, there are clean, efficient, and affordable renewable energy options available for both homes and businesses. Solar panels have been around for decades, and their efficiency has only continued to increase. In addition, wind energy is becoming increasingly popular, and it is now possible to generate clean power at home with a wind turbine. Best of all, these renewable energy options can help you save money on your electricity bill. So if you’re looking for a way to reduce your carbon footprint and save money at the same time, renewable energy is the way to go.
