When you want to make your home more energy efficient, many people think that they need to take extreme measures such as replacing their entire HVAC system, putting in new windows, and installing solar panels. While these things are certainly helpful and are sometimes necessary, oftentimes if you make many small changes, they can add up to big energy savings! At AppleBlossom Energy, we can help you find the ultimate in energy savings by showing you homes that qualify as a zero energy home. What is a zero energy home? Let’s discuss what makes a zero energy home.
A zero energy home is a name that is partnered with the U.S. Department of Energy. A zero energy home is one that is so high performance and so energy efficient that all or most of their annual energy consumption can be offset with renewable energy. When you have a zero energy home, you’ll find that your energy costs are slashed, which happens because zero energy homes are at least 40%-50% more efficient than your typical new home. Many new homes are built with only the bare minimum of insulation added. A zero energy home, on the other hand, is built with energy savings such as adequate insulation in mind.
Finding energy savings is easy when you decide to go with a zero energy home from our top builders here at AppleBlossom Energy. Our energy efficient homes are comfortable, come in a variety of floor plans, and are ready and waiting to give you the ultimate in energy savings.
