4 Advantages of a ZEN by Avalon, Net Zero Home

Avalon Master Builder is helping re-design homeownership with Net Zero Homes – a better home for you and the environment.

A Net Zero home is a combination of innovative design and advanced sustainable building practices. They provide you with the comfort and peace of mind you want in your family’s home.

There are four significant advantages of living in a Net Zero Home:

1 – Health and Comfort
2 – Energy-efficiency
3 – Affordability
4 – Environmental impact

Let’s look at the benefits of each of these.

1 – Health and Comfort

  • Net Zero Homes have higher air quality, reducing pollens, allergens and associated respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, providing a cleaner and healthier environment for your family.
  • High-performance windows help keep internal temperatures comfortable and consistent year-round.
  • You can breathe easy, knowing we only use non-toxic materials and supplies, combined with cutting-edge fresh air systems.
  • Relax in a well-insulated, tight home that is built to eliminate outside noise such as traffic or lawnmowers.

2 – Energy Efficiency

  • Net Zero homes use Passive solar design to enhance natural daylight, filling your home with light and warmth. High-quality insulation reduces energy costs.
  • A Net Zero home is built airtight with superior insulation and can generate as much renewable energy as it uses.
  • Through extensive draught-proofing around doors, windows, baseboards, and where pipes enter the house, Net Zero homes remain airtight.
  • Smart appliances, low-flow toilets and hot water on-demand help to decrease water usage and energy costs.

3 – Affordability

  • High energy bills are a thing of the past, as Net Zero homes generate most – if not all its own energy.
  • Energy-saving dishwashers, washing machines and toilets, as well as smart controls, help reduce water consumption and energy costs.
  • Don’t heat the entire water tank, you can get hot water on demand when you need it and save money too.
  • Net Zero homes can generate additional electricity putting it back into the power grid and crediting your account.
  • Your smart investment in a Net Zero home today will begin to pay off immediately and grow exponentially.

4 – Environmental

  • The technology and design of a Net Zero home reduce(s) carbon emissions.
  • By using energy-saving LED lights and Smart controls, you’re able to control where and when you need electricity.
  • Net Zero homes minimize your ecological footprint, reducing greenhouse gasses by 5 to 8 tons per year over a conventional new home.

When you examine the advantages of Net Zero homes, it’s clear that they provide a healthier and more affordable option to homeownership.

Net Zero homes have been gaining popularity for many years. Owners benefit from their smart decisions to invest in sustainable homes that provide a healthier and more comfortable place to live. Net Zero Homes are the future.
