Home Performance Upgrades
Make your home perform better
The performance of a home is a measure of how well it carries out the functions it is supposed to do. Unfortunately, sometimes the performance of a home - even a new home - is overlooked to achieve short term cost savings or aesthetics. They may have nice flooring and countertops, but they are ultimately lacking the insulation, airtightness, durability, and energy efficiency that can be achieved with modern building science knowledge and materials.
Most new homes adhere to the minimal requirements established by existing building codes. However, these codes fall considerably short of the advanced high-performance building standards attainable today.
Home performance involves a holistic approach that takes into account all aspects of a home operating as a system. High-performance homes are well-insulated, airtight, energy-efficient structures built to last. They offer superior comfort and a healthier indoor environment than traditional homes.
