What is a Net-Zero Home?

A net-zero home is a lot like an elegant custom home…only better…better for the residents, better for the environment, better for the planet. A net-zero home is so airtight, well insulated and energy efficient that it produces as much renewable energy as it consumes annually. Plus, design decisions made inside allow for temperature management with minimal energy, water conservation, air purification, healthy natural light exposure and sustainable, natural, healthy interiors and products in the home.
