Energy Efficiency in Sustainable Living
A net zero energy home is not just a “green home” or a home with solar panels. A zero-energy home combines advanced design and superior building systems with energy efficiency and on-site solar panels to produce a better home. Zero-energy homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable, and affordable.
A home is more than four walls and a roof. It is a place of comfort and security, a gathering place for friends, and a sanctuary for your family. Your home should serve to protect you and provide a healthy environment in which to live. Because zero-energy homes are built to a higher standard, you’ll breathe the cleanest air, feel the most comfortable temperatures, and enjoy the quietest indoor environment. You will sleep well knowing that you and your family live in a healthy, comfortable home, free from allergens and toxins.
In a Quinta Home, you won’t need a conventional HVAC system. And with a moderately-sized renewable energy system, the home can produce as much energy as it uses, making it a Net-Zero Energy Home.
Unity Energy Efficiency Advantage
Energy efficiency means financial savings in operations for many years. For example, a Baseline Quinta Vacation Home is 85% more efficient than a typical resale home and 55% more efficient than a standard new home. It is also 25% more efficient than a typical Energy Star Home and uses only 15% more energy than a Passive House.
Quinta Net Zero
The Baseline Unity Home can easily achieve Net Zero Energy Consumption or better with a solar PV system or other renewable energy sources.
