DOE Zero Energy Ready Home
The US Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home program represents a new level of home performance, with rigorous requirements that ensure outstanding levels of energy savings, comfort, health and durability.
A Zero Energy Ready Home is the home of the future — a better home — and it is available today.
A Zero Energy Ready Home lives better, works better and lasts better, which is why Greenville SC builder Addison Homes is committed to certifying projects to this Department of Energy building standard.
Healthful Environment: Every Zero Energy Ready Home minimizes dangerous pollutants, provides continuous fresh air, and effectively filters the air you breathe.
Comfort Plus: Superior insulation, windows, air sealing and space conditioning systems included in a Zero Energy Ready Home surround you with even temperatures, low-humidity, and quiet in every room on every floor.
Advanced Technology: Zero Energy Ready Home begins with solid building science specified by ENERGY STAR for Homes, and then adds advanced technologies and practices from US Department of Energy’s research program, Building America.
Ultra Efficiency: Compared to a typical home, an ultra-efficient Zero Energy Ready Home is inexpensive to own. In fact, these homes are so energy efficient that a small solar electric system can easily offset most, or all, of your utility bills.
Quality Built: Zero Energy Ready Home’s advanced construction practices and technologies are enforced by independent verifiers with detailed checklists and prescribed diagnostics.
Durability: The advanced levels of energy savings, comfort, health, durability, quality and future performance in every Zero Energy Ready Home provide value that will stand the test of time, meeting – and exceeding – forthcoming code requirements.
