Net Zero Renovations
Your Qualified Calgary Net Zero Renovator
Net Zero Homes produce as much clean energy as they consume. They are up to 80% more energy efficient than typical new homes and use renewable energy systems to produce the remaining energy they need. Every part of the house works together to provide consistent temperatures throughout, prevent drafts, and filter indoor air to reduce dust and allergens.
The result: exceptional energy performance and the ultimate in comfort – a home at the forefront of sustainability. It all adds up to a better living experience.
A Net Zero Home produces as much energy as it consumes and is up to 80% more energy efficient than a home built to conventional standards. With a Net Zero Home, your utility bills will fall to an alltime low, and stay low all year round. A Net Zero Home protects you from future increases in energy prices. Over the years, that could be a very big deal. Built to higher standards than conventional new homes, a Net Zero Home is more durable – with high performance, warm windows and better insulated walls and roof.
GREATER COMFORT, HEALTHIER LIVING
A Net Zero Home delivers exceptional comfort all year round. Advanced construction methods and materials along with superior heating, cooling and ventilation equipment means even temperatures throughout the house.
Exceptional indoor air quality for healthier living. A built-in filtered fresh air system reduces allergens and asthma triggers, such as dust, pollen and outdoor air pollution.
Tightly built and well insulated, a Net Zero Home is quieter. Outside noise such as traffic, lawnmowers and barking dogs are virtually silenced.
By purchasing a Net Zero Home, you’re doing your part to protect against climate change and preserve natural resources for future generations. A Net Zero Home produces as much energy – clean, renewable energy – as it consumes. All of a Net Zero Home’s features work together to significantly minimize your household’s environmental footprint.

Net Zero Homes Through Renovations
Net Zero Homes are not just for new construction anymore! Do you love your current neighbourhood and home but wish it was more energy efficient, more comfortable, and had better indoor air quality? Some homes are better candidates for a Net Zero Reno than others. We will be able to assist you in determining if your home is a good fit and can recommend various pathways to get there – in one shot, or over time with staged renovations.
Helping Homeowners with the Cost of Net Zero Energy
Renovating a home to Net Zero can entail significant costs for homeowners, but ultimately it is an investment in lifestyle and should reflect in the potential resale value of the home as well. CHBA has been working with the Appraisal Institute of Canada to bring best practices from the US Appraisal Institute’s Green and Energy Efficient Addendum to Canada to help ensure that investments made in energy efficiency are properly accounted for in the appraised value of a home.
