Zero Energy Home - PILOT PROJECT

 

Conclusions/Peak Performance Sample Home Unit

 

             Based on analysis and initial energy modeling of the envelope, the optimal approach was
             Spray Foam Insulation between rafters and wall studs (achieving the added benefit of low
             air infiltration and envelope sealing qualities) with (R-5) rigid foam wall sheathing board .
 
            
Energy conservation performance estimated at 47% to 55% better than homes
             constructed under standard building code requirements.
