NET ZERO HOMES

Net Zero Energy Homes

A Net Zero home is one that is designed, modelled and constructed to produce as much energy as it consumes on an annual basis.

In addition to enhanced high-performance building assemblies, Net-Zero will use on-site renewables like solar panels which can be connected to local electric grids.

The Advantages of Owning a Net Zero Home...

LOWER HOME OWNERSHIP COSTS.

*Other than the utility company's monthly hook-up fee, a NZE Home is designed to have no annual energy bills.  From day one, your home will cost less to own than a standard home.

OWN A BETTER, MORE DURABLE HOME

*Materials and Techniques used in NZE Homes are superior to Standard-built homes.  Less upkeep, and lasts longer!

INFLATION-PROOF AGAINST RISING UTILITY COSTS

*Energy Costs always go up! But NZE produces all the energy you need.

ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE

*No CO2 Emissions, Reduced Energy Requirements due to better building techniques, and the home produces it’s own energy. Our grandchildren will thank us for it!

✔ NZE HOMES REQUIRE LESS ONGOING MAINTENANCE

*Fewer Mechanical Systems to maintain. Durable construction. Fresh air systems = No mold.

✔ NZE HOMES GENERALLY RETAIN HIGHER RESALE VALUES

*Advanced Efficiency Technology and Durability help keep NZE Homes in demand.

✔ NZE HOMES ARE QUIETER AND MORE PEACEFUL

*Triple-paned windows, superior insulation techniques protect you from outside noise from roads, air-traffic, and your neighbour’s son who is learning the electric guitar!

✔ MOST IMPORTANTLY… COMFORT, COMFORT, COMFORT!

* Virtually air-tight walls allows for no un-wanted drafts or hot/cold spots in the home. And the home is supplied with continuous pre-heated or pre-cooled fresh air, reducing allergens, mold and pollutants. It is the healthiest home to live in!
