Housing and Home Renovations Trends for 2016

HarmonyHomeProjects


With much greater emphasis on energy and materials preservation efforts, the housing and renovation trends emphasize design and building techniques that sustain our natural resources. 

Energy Efficient Design

The energy efficient design, which is applicable to new builds and renovations, includes considerations such as:

•    Simplified building geometry to minimize thermal bridges, insulation and U-values
•    Passive solar heating, natural ventilation and passive cooling
•    Natural day-lighting
•    Renewable and non-toxic interior materials and finishes
•    Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
•    Advanced geothermal systems
•    Radiant heating
•    Heat recovery and natural ventilation
•    Low energy lighting & appliances
•    Water conserving appliances & fixtures
•    Multipurpose use of space

Green Home Renovations

Improving building efficiencies and comfort are key drives for renovation projects. Some improvements may include:

•    Reducing air leakage
•    Adding insulation
•    Re-application of air and vapor barriers (that has deteriorated over time)
•    Retrofitting windows and doors with weather seals
•    Replacing single-paned glazing with double or even triple- insulated glazing
