A Journey to Net Zero

In pursuing Net Zero homes, Profile views each element as vital to a larger puzzle. When these pieces come together, they form an efficient and comfortable masterpiece that people can see, feel, and experience deeply.

Net Zero represents a compelling concept and endeavour, delving into the essential components needed to construct a building and create a vibrant, living example of building science and dedication to environmental stewardship.

Bright Ideas

Our method embraces a balanced focus, emphasizing efficiency and creative freedom in window design. We significantly enhance spaces’ livability, comfort, and efficiency by adapting designs to fulfill specific requirements.

This approach is crucial in showing that windows can be imaginatively designed and thermally efficient, contributing effectively to eco-friendly living environments.

Running on the sun

We’ve reimagined the placement of solar panels on rooftops, turning potential visual distractions into deliberate and appealing design elements. In Net Zero homes, these solar panels are more than functional; they’re a crucial aspect of transforming sunlight into renewable energy, epitomizing the ethos of self-sufficiency.

Capacity Planning

Our strategy goes beyond energy generation, aiming for a future that exceeds Net Zero standards. We consider daily and seasonal variations in energy needs and production. Our focus is on designing systems that are efficient and adapt intelligently to these changes, ensuring optimal energy use and sustainability in your home as it evolves.

Health & Comfort

Sealing the envelope of a home and selecting suitable systems based on its size are crucial steps, but they need to fully account for the dynamic way a house is lived in. The number of occupants, humidity variation, and the need for more frequent air circulation are critical factors in creating a Net Zero home that is both healthy and efficient. We consider these elements to ensure that each home can adapt and adjust to its unique living conditions.

Modern Home Ventilation

The Lungs Of Your Home

A Net Zero home breathes through Heat Recovery Ventilation systems, exchanging indoor air with fresh outdoor air without losing energy. This isn’t just ventilation; it’s a sophisticated respiratory system for your home, ensuring a continuous flow of fresh, clean air.

The Invisible Shield

Air sealing in Net Zero homes goes unnoticed, yet its impact is monumental. This invisible shield meticulously prevents unwanted air leakage, ensuring every breath of air in your home is conditioned, controlled, and comfortable.

The Guardian Of Energy

Walls, roofs, and floors are more than mere barriers; they are guardians outfitted with advanced insulation. This isn’t just about keeping the cold out; it’s about creating a consistent, efficient environment where every ounce of energy is treasured.

What is measured is improved

We aim to create homes free from the chronic issues that have long challenged construction. We ensure each component works synergistically by considering immediate functionality, long-term reliability and resilience in various scenarios. From the moment you receive the keys to the day you host your first gathering, your home evolves. We don’t just build houses; we craft adaptive, responsive living spaces. Our approach transcends mere compliance with Net Zero standards. Instead, we focus on creating homes that adapt to the rigours of everyday life and changing lifestyles.

Efficent today & tomorrow

Our philosophy is rooted in the belief that what is measured can be improved and proven. This is why we emphasize rigorous testing and monitoring from the outset. It’s not enough to have a checklist for a Net Zero home; we delve deeper, considering factors like occupancy and lifestyle today and tomorrow.

Adaptive Control & Monitoring

Incorporating consistent monitoring of all systems – solar, air handling, heating, and cooling – ensures they work harmoniously. Achieving a balance where these systems operate cohesively isn’t simple, but it’s essential for a home that not only meets but anticipates the needs of its inhabitants.

In crafting a Net Zero home, every component, every system, and every choice is a step towards a more sustainable future. 

These homes go beyond mere structures; they represent a tangible commitment to environmental responsibility, serving as models for eco-friendly living. 

At Profile Custom Homes, we focus on building homes that are not only thoughtful and built to last but also innovative, setting new standards for future home construction.
