What is a Net Zero home?

 

Put simply, a Net Zero home produces as much clean, renewable energy as it consumes. It aspires to a better way of building, a better way of relating to the environment, a better way of living. 

How does it do it ? Advanced design and construction methods, improved insulation, superior heating, cooling and ventilation equipment and water-saving fixtures and appliances. 

The result ? A home at the forefront of sustainability. Exceptional energy performance. More affordable. A better living experience for you and your family.

A Net Zero home is built to a better standard 

  • A Net Zero home is more durable than a house built to traditional standards – with advanced window technology, air-tight walls and a better insulated roof

A Net Zero home means greater comfort and healthier living for your family 

  • Winter or summer, a Net Zero home delivers consistent temperatures throughout the house
  • A built-in filtered fresh air system reduces allergens and asthma triggers, such as dust, pollen and air pollution
  • Well built and insulated, a Net Zero home is quieter

A Net Zero home is the right choice for the environment 

  • All of a Net Zero home’s features work together to significantly minimize your household’s environmental footprint, preserving natural resources for future generations

A Net Zero home will save you money 

  • A Net Zero home is 80% more energy efficient than a home built to conventional standards. This means your utility bills will fall to an all-time low, and stay low, whatever the season
  • A Net Zero home will also protect you from future increases in energy prices

A Net Zero home puts you ahead of the curve 

  • In December 2017, the BC Energy Step Code came into effect. This law mandates that by 2032 all new buildings need to be Net Zero ready. Morley Mountain Homes has the tools and knowledge to design and build Net Zero homes today.
