In this video, David Dodge & Dylan Thompson of Green Energy Futures share some secrets for a super energy-efficient home. “The era of net-zero homes is upon us. These super-efficient homes use rooftop solar energy production and smaller, electric powered heating systems such as air source heat pumps to produce as much energy as they consume,” write Dodge and Thompson. “That’s some sexy technology, but it only gets us halfway to net-zero. The real secret is insulation.”
Peter Amerongen, the principal director at Habitat Studio, a custom home builder, and one of the pioneers of net-zero homes in Edmonton, Alberta shares his expert advice for the ideal formula.
