Why Build a Zero Energy Ready Home?
Zero Energy Ready homes, which are backed by the U.S. Department of Energy, represent an entirely new level of home performance. These homes adhere to rigorous standards which make them remarkably energy efficient, comfortable, healthy, and durable. Some of the most notable features of a Zero Energy Ready home include:
High performance thermal enclosure
Energy efficient windows, high performance insulation, and comprehensive draft protection provide consistent comfort and keep contaminants out of the home year-round.
Whole house water protection
A comprehensive water barrier system and interior moisture control keep unwanted water and moisture out of the home.
High performance comfort system
High efficiency heating and cooling equipment and thoughtfully designed ductwork make for lower energy bills and more reliable indoor comfort.
Whole house health protection
Contaminant resistant construction, a fresh air system, and high capture filtration technology work together to maintain healthy indoor air quality.
Solar ready construction
Zero Energy Ready homes are designed to offset all or most annual energy consumption with renewable energy. Built-in features make it simple to install rooftop solar panels down the road.
