What is a Net Zero Home?
A home that creates as much energy as it consumes
How do we do it
Start by insulating and sealing the building to minimizing heat and cooling losses
Add controlled passive solar heating
Install exceptionally high-efficiency ventilation
ventilate the home with preheated fresh air, recapturing up to 84% of the heat in the stale air with an ERV.
Use efficient appliances
Replace the small amount of energy consumed with clean power and heat from solar collectors
More to come...
