Zero Energy Ready Homes (ZERH)

The Department of Energy (DOE) Zero Energy Ready Home represents a whole new level of home performance, with rigorous requirements that ensure outstanding levels of energy saving, comfort, health, and durability.

ZERH Homes begin with solid building science specified by ENERGY STAR for Homes. They then add advanced technologies and practices from DOE’s world-class research program, Building America, to create homes that are at least 40% to 50% more energy efficient than a typical new home.
