In order to achieve net zero emissions globally by 2050, our homes must become more sustainable. Fortunately, solutions that exist today allow us to make our homes smart and sustainable. Homeowners like you, along with home builders, property developers, architects, and contractors, are essential players in this collective effort.
You may have heard of net zero homes, but what exactly is it? Net zero homes produce as much energy as they consume on an annual basis, resulting in a zero-energy bill and a carbon-neutral home. These sustainable homes strike the balance of reducing energy use with generating renewable energy onsite.
As net zero homes grow in popularity, there is an ever-increasing array of tools and technologies that make these homes more achievable for homeowners. Here are the key components of a net zero home:
- Solar panels and battery storage system
- Solar Inverters
- Energy-efficient certified appliances
- Geothermal pumps
- Smart thermostats
- Weather-sealed doors and frames
- Radiant floor heating
