Project Description

Through his work at The Green Panel out of Brighton, MI, homeowner, Mark, knew a lot about the benefits of going green. When it came time to build a home for him and his family, Mark decided to "practice what he preaches" and build a net-zero home. With careful consideration, Mark selected the best products from insulation to lighting, controls, and mechanicals to make his dream home a reality. The home is a ranch-style house with a full walkout basement, complete with a bar, porch with a beautiful outdoor fireplace, and many personal touches.

Installation Details

The home has a two-zoned forced air system using Honeywell controls, a GeoSpring heat pump water heater, a steam humidifier, and General Air HEPA filtration and HRV system. A 14 kW solar array, using SolarEdge inverters, will provide enough power for the home's yearly energy needs. To help achieve net-zero status, LED lights are used throughout with dimmers and vacancy light switches, there's a rain runoff collection system, and high-quality insulation, closed-cell foam, was used.
