A home is more than four walls and a roof.
It’s a place of comfort and security, a gathering place for friends and a sanctuary for your family. Your home should serve to protect you and provide a healthy environment in which to live. Because zero energy homes are built to a higher standard, you’ll breathe the cleanest air, feel the most comfortable temperatures and enjoy the quietest indoor environment. You will sleep well knowing that you and your family live in a healthy, comfortable home, free from allergens and toxins.
From move-in day and for as long as you own the home, the total cost of living in a zero energy home is lower than that for a comparable standard home. A zero energy home will protect you from a rapid rise in energy prices. 15 years from now you’ll pay the same price you pay today to keep your lights on and keep your family warm. That price will be zero or next to zero.
