A zero energy home can fit your life and your style. Individuals, couples, and families, of all ages and incomes can live in zero energy homes. These homes can range from mansions to development homes, to small cottages and tiny homes. Zero energy homes can look like any other home or have their own unique style.
A home is more than four walls and a roof. It is 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 of a comparable standard home. A zero energy home will protect you from a rapid rise in energy prices. Ten years from now, you’ll pay the same price you pay today to keep your lights on and your family warm. That price will be zero or next to zero.
Zero energy homes are better, more durable, homes from the ground floor up to the roof. Thicker more air-tight walls, fresh filtered air, and advanced window technologies, among many other features, ensure that our zero energy home is better protected and more durable than the average home. In fact zero energy homes are superior to most high-end homes.
Global climate change is today's most pressing issue. Buildings alone are responsible for 40% of the total energy used in the World. Zero energy homes are one of the cornerstones of a reduced carbon future that is not reliant on fossil fuels. With a zero energy home, you control where your home's energy comes from with every flip of the light switch, every day. The Zero Energy Project is here to connect you with resources and empower you to take action.
