What are Net Zero Homes?

The higher the efficiency of a home, the less energy it consumes. Net Zero homes are energy efficient because of the flexibility of construction. For example, they use conventional stick framing or prefabricated passive house style panels. At Schreyer Construction, we also use Net Zero software in the design process. This enables us to achieve Net Zero targets.

What are the Advantages of Net Zero Homes?

A Net Zero home is a holistically designed and built home where all systems such as the building envelope, windows, solar panels, heating / cooling, and ventilation work together to achieve the lowest possible energy consumption. If your home is situated in a colder climate and you require more energy than the home can produce, you can make up your consumption in summer months. Net Zero homes have flexibility in the construction, using conventional stick framing or prefabricated passive house style panels. The higher the efficiency of the home, the less energy consumption. Net Zero software is used in the design process to achieve the Net Zero targets.
