LIVE BETTER IN A HIGH PERFORMANCE HOME
A High Performance Home combines quality construction and energy efficiency. Homes are built better than the minimum BC Building Code and cost considerably less to operate on a monthly basis while providing a high level of comfort and healthy indoor air quality. Each completed home is tested for air leakage using a fan door test.
TOP SIX BENEFITS OF A HIGH PERFORMANCE HOME:
increased energy efficiency
Lower energy consumption keeps monthly operating costs low and provides protection from future increases in energy prices.
Insulated concrete form (icf) foundation keeps temperatures consistent throughout the year reducing the need for excessive heating and cooling. A heat recovery ventilator (hrv) transfers waste exhaust heat to incoming air. Air tight drywall creates a building envelope that reduces uncontrollable air leakage.
improved building practices
Better construction techniques give you the peace of mind that your home will last longer, require less maintenance, and ultimately be worth more than a conventional home when it comes time to sell.
Whole home surge protection protects home electronics and appliances. Braided stainless steel sink and toilet leads rather than plastic prevent flooding. Solar ready future conduit. Insulated steel overhead doors.
