Upgrading your home to include energy-efficient features may entail initial costs, but it is one effective way to gain long-term savings. From sealing cracks to replacing insulation to installing windows, you have many ways to cut costs and help the environment at the same time.
In this post, Renewal by Andersen ® of Seattle discusses Net Zero projects that can help you achieve your green living goals.
Net Zero Projects
Net Zero means taking on home improvement projects, such as window replacement in Seattle, that can make your home so energy-efficient that it can offset most, if not all, of your energy consumption. The idea is to keep your household’s net energy consumption at zero. Here are some factors to consider when taking on a Net Zero Project:
A Net Zero project is more feasible if your home is in the right location. For instance, if you live in a good-sized lot with good solar access and minimal shade existing, you’re good to go.
You can upgrade your home to include very thick exterior walls for increased insulation. You may opt for a closed-loop ground to source your geothermal heating and cooling needs. In the perfect size, it can provide 100% of your home’s space heating, cooling, and domestic hot water.
Windows and Doors
Windows make a measurable difference in energy savings. Bay windows in Seattle from Renewal by Andersen of Seattle, for instance, can provide greater energy efficiency that can help reduce your bills. Not only are our windows efficient, but they also incorporate insulating values that stabilize indoor temperatures and reduce the transfer of outside noise.
