Deep Energy Retrofits
What is Deep Energy Retrofit?
Deep Energy Retrofit (DER) is a kind of renovation to existing homes and buildings for the reduction in energy consumption. The overhaul results in 50%-90% of energy savings if most of the energy loads such as air conditioning, hot water supply, lighting and appliances energy consumption are addressed.
Such a huge scale remodeling requires intensive remodeling upgradation to improve energy distribution, indoor air and light quality, and heating/cooling system. These renovations address the climatic changes, diminishing natural resources, inflation through design and construction of the building.
Contrary to traditional renovation, DERs have set goals in specific numbers, for instance, a house that currently consumes 120 million BTU per year can be reduced to 20 million BTU per year through effective planning, innovative design and comprehensive strategies thoughtful vision for years to come.
Reach maximum efficiency through DER
Upgrade heating system
Insulate and seal the roof and walls
Buy energy efficient appliances
Depend on renewable energy
