Why Net Zero?

WHy buy a

Net Zero
ready home?

Net Zero Ready homes are an astonishing 80% more energy efficient than those constructed at the current regulated building code.

The additional benefits to the consumer are significant and measurable with increased savings seen through:

  • Reduced heat loss
  • Increased insulation values
  • Less water wastage
  • Heat recovery of exhausted air and waste water.
  • Future solar panels save resources and enable owner to offset consumption.
  • Environmental protection through use of low VOC products

Net Zero Ready Efficiency

Net Zero Ready Homes are highly insulated and extremely air tight using R32 wall construction with 2” rigid exterior insulation and R60 in the ceilings. Other features found in Net Zero Ready homes are low VOC materials, paired with heat recovery ventilators to improve air quality.

Net Zero Ready incorporates all state-of-the-art mechanical and superior insulation systems when building, however does not include the physical solar panels. Design considerations and modifications are included in preparation for the installation of a future photovoltaic system.
