Avoid cold rooms

Dec 23, 2016
Does the temperature in your home vary from room to room? 

The reasons for this are plentiful. Either your heating system is not functioning properly or your building envelope is not up the job. It could be low insulation levels in the walls and roof, faulty or inefficient windows, thermal bridging, and/or air leaks. It doesn't need to be this way.  

New house construction techniques and materials enable higher performance homes with much higher insulation values, reduced thermal bridging, and significantly reduced air infiltration. This is the reason why Net-Zero Structures builds with an advanced framing technique using structural insulated panels

Older homes can be retrofitted with renovations panels. Adding renopanels to the outside of your house will increase the high r-values and eliminate thermal bridging across wall studs and floor joists. For basements, renovation panels can be used to renovate the interior of basement walls as was done in this video

Live in comfort. Either have your new home constructed by Net-Zero Structures or ask us about retrofiting your existing home.

New Home in Watson Landing, Smithers

Watson Landing2-500x300

This energy efficient house was built in the new Watson Landing subdivision on the shores of Lake Kathlyn in beautiful Smithers BC. 


Did You Know?

As the difference between ambient air and the air encapsulated in the EPS foam in a Net-Zero SIP panel become more and more pronounced, the r-value of the foam increases. The practical implication is that the colder it gets, the more insulation value the foam has.  Read more...
