Saying “buh-bye” to the gas line is a lofty dream for many of us as we work toward a more sustainable lifestyle. If you can go a more sustainable route, why wouldn’t you? However, the barriers to going all-electric can be a little daunting, especially if you’re new to the concept.

Air-sealing corners can be tricky when placing windows in the middle of deeper wall assemblies. Once you got this little trick down, you are good to go. This would be a solution for both the exterior Fentrim 230 or interior Fentrim IS 20.

AND, we are here to help you - Not to mention SIGA`s website, YouTube channel, and instructional guides—there are plenty of resources on best practices with helpful tips.

We`ve got news to celebrate! 🥳 A report released by the Passive House Network shows that the cost of building energy-efficient structures is now close to the same as building standard structures, and in some cases, incentives, tax credits, and rebates actually make building an energy-efficient home cheaper!

Add to that the fact that a home built to passive house standards can lower energy costs by up to 80%, and you might be better off going high-performance! 💚

We are in the summer season when electricity bills typically rise as we try to cool ❄️ our houses. What if you could cut the cost of those electricity bills? 📉

That is exactly what Todd and his family did, as they installed a heat pump. The heat pump is about 3x more efficient than a traditional furnace and it is also the air conditioning unit as it reverses in the summer months. Newer heat pump technologies are significantly more energy efficient than in the past. More efficient = less electricity = lower costs. 💸

Simply put, heat pumps move heat from one place to another. So in the summer, it pulls the heat out of your house and puts it outside. Pretty "cool" if you ask us! 😉

DM us if you have more questions about Todd retrofitting his own house.
