Four Simple Steps to Net Zero
01. Energy Modelling
Energy modelling gives us the ability to make educated decisions about the effects of changing different variables (such as insulation thickness and solar array size) on the energy performance of your existing home, or of one not yet built.
Through a series of tests, our experts can perform a thorough energy audit of your existing home in order to find shortcomings that result in excess energy losses.
02. Building Envelope
Proper insulation, airtightness, as well as high-performing windows and doors are the key elements required to improve occupant comfort and to reduce your home's energy consumption.
With over 20 years experience in exterior contracting, the founder of Solar Homes Inc., Peter Darlington can guarantee a quality job on the exterior of your new or existing building.
03. Energy Efficient Equipment
Whether you are ditching the fuel-powered furnace for an electric heat pump, or installing a new solar generating system, our knowledge and connections in the industry mean that we can give you the best value for your investment.
Our experts will assess your heating load to ensure that the equipment is sized correctly for your individual needs.
04. Generate Renewable Energy
By including a way to generate renewable energy on site, your home can produce all the energy it requires throughout the year. By remaining connected to the electricity grid, you get the best of both worlds. You maintain reliable electricity service at times when your demand exceeds your production without the need for on-site storage, while getting paid when there is excess energy produced. Annually, in best case scenario's, the home owner may pay no net energy bill for their home and vehicle.
