Building Tight Homes for Efficiency


We understand that efficiency starts with design. That's why we focus on building tight homes that prioritize energy conservation without compromising on comfort. A tight home not only reduces energy consumption but also enhances indoor air quality, creating a healthier living environment.

Science-Based Approach to Energy Efficiency

Energy use is affected by everything, from building materials to HVAC systems. By understanding the science of a home, we implement strategies that optimize energy performance and minimize waste. Our goal is to design homes that operate efficiently and sustainably for years to come.

Ventilate Right, Live Right

At Performance by Design, we believe in the mantra: "Build it tight, ventilate it right." Proper ventilation is crucial for maintaining indoor air quality and preventing issues like mold and moisture buildup. We integrate ventilation solutions that ensure fresh, clean air circulation throughout your home.

Promoting Healthy Living

We prioritize the health and well-being of our clients by creating homes that are not only energy-efficient but also promote a healthy lifestyle. Our focus on a healthy house design results in spaces that are comfortable, safe, and conducive to overall wellness.

High Performance with Design Always Pays

Investing in high-performance design pays off in the long run. Our homes not only save you money on energy bills but also increase resale value and contribute to a sustainable future. With Performance By Design, you can trust that every aspect of your home is meticulously crafted for optimal performance and durability.
