How do you decide whether to build a high-performance home or a home built to code? We can help you figure it out.
Building beyond code
In California, CalGreen is the baseline building code that all new home construction must follow. In terms of energy efficiency, air quality, and sustainability, there is a lot of room for improved performance by building beyond this code. And, the cost difference is not very significant. In high-performance design and construction, everyone involved in the building process takes into account energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design...
Did you know that Net-Zero homes generate the same energy they consume, through renewable sources like sun, wind, or water? When building a custom home, it's important to remember that the cost of the home extends far beyond the build. Over time, paying for power and utilities can add up. It makes sense at the build stage to create the most efficient house possible. That's where a Net-Zero Home comes in.
Lighten the power workload
Your house is a series of systems: ventilation, heating,
lighting, insulation, etc. These structures are complex and interconnected.
Therefore, they require...
