The zero energy home ready train has left the station. Tens-of-thousands of homes already constructed provide compelling evidence. Extensive builder feedback suggests strong business advantages. Testimonials from homeowners all across the country demonstrate a vastly superior user experience. And we haven’t begun to address the impressive societal benefits associated with a stronger economy, cleaner air, additional jobs, and significantly less peak power demand. Not surprisingly, there are a growing number of zero energy codes in states and cities. Maybe even more significantly, the national 2021 International Energy Conservation Code is essentially equivalent to a zero energy ready home enclosure. If you’re a builder and not on this train, you have a lot of catching up to do. If you are on the train, you need to know how to construct zero for less. This all begins with this session which will show the key building blocks of a zero energy ready home and how to optimize them. The exciting news is that an optimized zero energy ready home can cost the same or less cost as a minimum code home. Consider all the additional profit, customer satisfaction, market differentiation, and reduced customer service calls a nice bonus.
