Have you ever heard of a passive house? Unless you are an energy buff you probably haven’t, but these homes may be the homes of the future. These homes have already gained massive popularity in Europe and other parts of the world, and the concept has recently reached our shores as well. Passive homes are truly revolutionary because they don’t rely on a furnace for home heating, and yet they stay incredibly comfortable. These homes are not only energy efficient, but they employ several alternative heating and cooling methods to keep costs down and comfort up.
Super thick insulation, well placed windows, an ingenious ventilation system, and a wood pellet stove work together to keep these homes comfortable, and although you may not be able to achieve this high level of efficiency without rebuilding your home, you can still take advantage of energy savings in your home with the help of Four Seasons.
