A Net Zero home is one of the biggest contributions individuals can make to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Buildings and construction are responsible for nearly 40% of global greenhouse gas emissions. The majority of that is from single-family homes. The urgent need to reduce emissions highlights the importance that homeowners, like you, start the journey to a Net Zero home as soon as possible
A Net Zero home produces as much energy as it consumes. By making your home more efficient by upgrading insulation and windows, air sealing, and switching to heat pumps and energy-efficient appliances, you can reduce the energy used in your home. The energy you do use can be offset by electricity generated on-site using solar panels. Switching away from fossil fuels has a big impact on reducing the emissions of your home.
Throughout the 5 step process, Homes to Zero evaluates and recommends improvements to reduce the climate impact of your home.
