Zero is the Future of Housing….And No Extra Cost if Optimized

Sam Rashkin

The zero energy and Zero Energy Ready train has left the station. Tens-of-thousands of homes already constructed provide compelling evidence. Extensive builder feedback suggests strong business advantages. Testimonials from homeowners all across the country demonstrate a vastly superior customer experience. And we haven’t begun to address the impressive societal benefits associated with a stronger economy, cleaner air, additional jobs, and significantly less peak power demand. Not surprisingly, there are a growing number of zero energy codes in states and cities. Maybe even more significantly, the national 2021 International Energy Conservation Code is essentially equivalent to a Zero Energy Ready Home enclosure.

If you’re not on this train, you have a lot of catching up to do. That begins with this session which will show the key building blocks of a Zero Energy Ready Home and how to optimize them. The exciting news is that an optimized Zero Energy Ready Home can cost the same or less cost as a minimum code home! Consider all the additional profit, customer satisfaction, market differentiation from increasingly obsolete existing homes, and reduced customer service calls a nice bonus.

RaterFest Reviews

"This was definitely a surprisingly informative and useful event. I am glad I made the trek from Nashville to the Rockies to spend a few days with like minded professionals, and will most certainly be back again next year. Covering everything from the latest in HVAC design to standards and QA updates, the topics were useful and on point, and the location and company can't be beat."


- Jonathan Gensler, Revive Energy LLC


"Great event! The sessions left me wanting more and the networking was great. I hope to return annually!"


- Michael Matthews, Advanced Energy
