Net Zero Energy Homes Are Reality

August 10, 2016

CBCNEWS recently published an article after the five homes Reid's Heritage Homes built in Guelph were recognized as being the first Net Zero homes in Canada under new standards set up by the Canadian Home Builders' Association.

"Consumers, I think, are just starting to realize what the opportunities are with these homes," Jennifer Weatherston, director of innovation and estimating with Reid's Heritage Homes, told CBC News.

"…What people will find when they buy these homes is one, they're getting stability from rising increases in utility rates, two, they've got a better quality home. Your comfort is consistent from top to bottom, you've got better indoor air quality, just a better living environment all around."
