Green Home Renovations

Create a healthier, more comfortable living and working space

Eco-friendly home renovations promote energy efficiency, minimize environmental impact, conserve resources, and create a healthier living environment.

Green building practices, also known as sustainable or eco-friendly building practices, involve designing, constructing, and operating buildings in ways that minimize their environmental impact, promote energy efficiency, and conserve resources. They create healthier and more comfortable living and working spaces. These practices aim to reduce the negative effects of construction and operation on the environment while also improving the well-being of occupants.


Remodel vs. Renovate vs. Restore


involves making significant changes to a building’s layout, structure, or design to adapt it to new needs or preferences.


involves repairing, updating, or improving an existing building to modern standards and codes, while preserving its general layout and character.


focuses on returning a building to its original state, often with a historical emphasis, by preserving original features and materials and addressing damage or deterioration.

Looking for an eco-friendly home renovation to upgrade the home’s efficiency? We can help.

No matter if you are looking for home electrification or all the way to a deep energy retrofit we can help you through the different scenarios and how to reach your goals. 

Deep Energy Retrofit

A deep energy retrofit is a comprehensive and strategic renovation process for existing buildings aimed at achieving significantly higher levels of energy efficiency and sustainability. It involves upgrading insulation, windows, HVAC systems, lighting, and other components to drastically reduce the building’s energy consumption and carbon footprint. This approach often involves a holistic assessment of the building’s performance and the implementation of advanced technologies to achieve substantial energy savings.

Home Electrification

Switching to an all-electric home has several potential benefits, both for homeowners and the environment. Here are some key advantages:

  1. Energy Efficiency:Electric appliances have become increasingly energy-efficient, meaning they use less energy to perform the same tasks compared to their gas or oil counterparts. This can lead to lower energy bills and reduced overall energy consumption.
  2. Environmental Benefits: An all-electric home reduces greenhouse gas emissions, as it eliminates the combustion of fossil fuels within the home. This contributes to mitigating climate change and improving air quality.
  3. Renewable Energy Integration: All-electric homes can more easily integrate with renewable energy sources like solar panels. This allows homeowners to generate their own clean energy and potentially even sell excess energy back to the grid, making the home more sustainable and reducing reliance on centralized energy sources.
  4. Reduced Indoor Air Pollution: Gas and oil appliances can emit pollutants like carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and particulate matter, which can negatively impact indoor air quality and the health of occupants. Electric appliances don’t produce these pollutants, leading to better indoor air quality.
  5. Distributed Energy Storage: Some all-electric homes can be equipped with battery storage systems. These batteries can store excess energy generated from renewable sources and release it when needed, providing backup power during outages and reducing reliance on the grid.

Heat Pumps in Minnesota

Heat pumps can be used in Minnesota (MN) if you keep some considerations in mind due to the colder climate. They are efficient and effective in providing both heating and cooling and work by transferring heat from one place to another, rather than generating heat directly like traditional heating systems.

There are two main types of heat pumps:

  • air-source heat pumps and (ASHP)
  • ground-source (geothermal) heat pumps (GSHP).
