Going Electric: Getting Off Gas as a Key Sustainability Strategy

Symbi Homes plans for 100% electrification in the Model ReModel 2022 project, but that comes with some caveats 

June 30, 2022

Among the most predominant themes for solving the global climate crisis, policymakers and activists alike have called for a drastic reduction in our reliance on fossil fuels, which emit the vast majority of harmful greenhouse gas emissions. 

To that end, green builders and remodelers have begun to embrace electrification to improve the sustainability of our built environment.

Symbi Homes, the sustainable builder of our Model ReModel 2022 is looking to achieve near 100% electrification for their restoration of a 19th-century Victorian with a new 850-square-foot in-law suite addition. 

Products for Electrification

The project will feature high-efficiency electric equipment and appliances including heat pumps by Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US for heating and cooling, Samsung induction cooktops and electric ovens, and an electric hot water heater for the addition.
