Whole House Approach

[vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1575989045685{padding-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]Designing and building a new house or renovating an existing house to be highly energy-efficient requires careful planning and attention to detail. A whole-house systems approach helps homeowners, architects, and builders develop successful strategies for optimizing home energy efficiency.

This approach considers the house as an energy system with interdependent parts, each of which affects the performance of the entire system. It also takes the occupants, site, and local climate into consideration.

To ensure that your new or renovated home takes full advantage of a whole-house systems approach, hire an experienced design and building team and insist that they use a whole-building systems approach from the beginning of the design process. Your designer can perform a whole-house computer simulation that compares multiple combinations of variables to arrive at the most cost-effective and energy-efficient solution.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1575989027116{padding-bottom: 100px !important;}”][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]These variables could include:

  • Site conditions
  • Local climate
  • Appliances and home electronics
  • Insulation and air sealing
  • Lighting and daylighting
  • Space heating and cooling
  • Water heating
  • Windows, doors, and skylights.

Some benefits of using a whole-house systems approach include:

  • Reduced utility and maintenance costs
  • Increased comfort
  • Reduced noise
  • A healthier and safer indoor environment
  • Improved building durability.
