Higher Insulation Levels
We go the extra mile to give you superior walls and ceilings insulation beyond the requirements of the building code, giving you less temperature variation indoors
Energy efficient homes are designed to meet a specific energy target, paying more attention to airtightness to provide extra comfort and energy savings. Your home will be more air-sealed than a standard home, which in turn drastically reduces drafts and cold spots, pollen, dust, vermin, and noise.
Highly Efficient HVAC System
An efficient heating and cooling system will help you save energy, which translates to greater cost savings on utility bills every year. You may also consider getting an air-exchanger, also referred to as an energy or heat recovery ventilation system, whose role is to improve the quality of indoor air by removing stale air and replacing it with fresh, filtered outdoor air.
Help the Planet
Reports suggest that an Energy Star certified home that takes every measure to conserve energy, including using Energy Star-rated doors, windows, and appliances, helps to save over 1,000 kgs of greenhouse gases that could have been released on earth every year. This is about as much emissions as driving a gasoline car for 6,000 km. Reducing your energy consumption helps to conserve the natural resources and protect the environment by minimizing emissions that contribute to climate change. It also gives you peace of mind knowing that you’re doing everything in your power to give your children and grandchildren a chance to enjoy a healthy environment. The building code for your region defines the guidelines for your home construction and renovation. Fidelity Builders & Design can help you stay compliant while reducing your energy consumption, carbon footprint, and utility bills, and subsequently increasing your home’s comfort and value.
