Retrofitting Net Zero | Turning Existing Homes into Net Zero Homes


Here at Halco we do what’s called Retrofit NetZero and what we mean by
that is: we’re taking existing old homes,
sometimes homes from the 1800s and, what we’re able to do is, we’re able
to first of all, come in a do a home
energy evaluation and we’re able to tighten up that home
through all of our different methods of insulation and air sealing and all the different products and
services we offer. We’re able to tighten that home right down just like it was a new home. And
then from there we introduce renewable energy. And so we will come in and very typically
use geothermal taking the energy from the earth, and we”ll
make all the heating, the air conditioning, and how water with
geothermal, then will pair the geothermal up with
either solar or wind to make the electricity.
Either the solar or the wind will make all of the power for the geothermal
plus the baseload electricity to run the lights and such, and at the end of the day the people
have no energy bill ever again. And what we call that is
retrofit net zero. Your making all your own energy, you’re not
depending on the grid there’s no carbon footprint involved,
because you’re producing all your own power. It’s a great thing, we’ve got
many many systems under our belt, doing that, we really pride ourselves
at Halco you know those companies that do new
construction Net Zero There is a handful of them but
there’s nobody doing retrofit Net Zero are like we are at Halco. At the end of the day people have no
energy bill ever again. What a great thing!
