What is a high performance home?
There is no standardized definition for a high performance home, at Homes by Sorensen our definition for high-performance is designing and building a home that is well above the caliber of a conventionally-built home.
Your high performance home is designed and constructed with the intention to ensure your home is efficient and will stand the test of time. It could include eco-friendly construction materials, solar panels, or rough-in for future solar panels. Consideration of your building envelope and exterior wall assembly is a must, where intentional, cost-effective decisions are thought about, considered and advised.
High performance homes are healthier, environmentally friendly and a great long-term investment. If you are considering a new custom home, learning more about building a high-performance home is a great way to start!
