Efficiency is the cornerstone to zero energy. ZeMod homes produce as much energy as they use, which means you will have no electric or fuel costs. ZeMod homes achieve zero energy by having a super-insulated envelop, all-electric HVAC system, and all appliances and lighting are ENERGY STAR® rated.
Zero Energy Ready Home
ZeMod homes are independently certified to meet the Department of Energy’s Zero Energy Ready Home guidelines.

Fresh Air Ventilation
Fresh, filtered air replaces pollutants that build up in the home and increase the likelihood of allergy and asthma attacks. Energy recovery from exhaust air heats or cools incoming air.
The Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) system works like a thermostat – it monitors indoor air quality and automatically delivers fresh air when levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) exceed recommended levels.
The ERV system continuously circulates and filters indoor air to remove pollen, dust, and other contaminants. Built-in dehumidification ensures a dry indoor environment, preventing the growth of mold and mildew. People with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems breathe easier with clean indoor air.
Energy efficient and maintenance free and comply with stringent DOE ZERH home standards. Windows have two layers of glass, insulated frames, and airtight sashes that keep warmth in and drafts out.
Water fixtures are WaterSense certified to meet EPA specifications for water efficiency and performance.
