Net-Zero Home

In 2015, The homeowner approached me with sketches of the house he envisioned. He wanted to build a near-net-zero residence for him and his family, using “passive house” principles and techniques The almost 7,000sf house delivers on the owners’ expectations. With a 10.7-kW PV system, the family’s average monthly utility bill is $45, which covers heating, cooling, hot water and all plug loads. 

 

The house’s performance and comfort stems from: 1) A high level on insulation on all 6 sides, 2) meticulous air sealing, 3) high performance triple pane windows and 4) continuous fresh air supply.
