Toward a Zero Net Home

Many existing homes can be transformed into a Zero Net Energy  home.  The goal is to make a building highly efficient while producing all the energy it consumes – that’s why it’s called “Net Zero.”

 Generally, the first step in the process is  to reduce the home’s total energy consumption through insulation and air sealing improvements. 

The home’s heating and ventilation systems can then be re-sized and upgraded to high-performance systems that will further improve comfort and reduce the home’s energy demand. 

The final step is to design and install a renewable energy system –generally a solar photovoltaic (“PV”) system – that is properly sized for the new energy profile of the home.
