The New American Home 2017: Energy Smarts + Resort-Style Living

March 13, 2017

Originally Aired: February 17, 2017

The New American Home 2017 undeniably offers gracious living and entertaining with its stunning pool, multiple kitchens, and separate wing of guest bedrooms. But this 8,245-square-foot, pod-style home delivers more than surface beauty. Its combined green and sustainable building materials, products, energy efficiencies and construction methods have earned it an HERS rating of zero.

In this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how the various design and mechanical elements that work in concert will result in energy bills that are estimated to average about $250 annually. Also discussed will be the features that make the home “water-wise” and earned green certifications, including NGBS Emerald, Energy Star, EPA Indoor AirPlus, and Wellness Within the Walls (LEED certification is currently under review).
