Builder Steps Up for Zero Energy Ready Subdivision
Although Garbett Homes had already been named a Home Innovation Award winner, a new project near Salt Lake City required a new level of commitment.
At the 2017 Energy & Environmental Building Alliance High Performance Home Summit, Garbett won a second award, this one for the Chandler at Little Cottonwood Canyon.
Damian Mora, energy efficiency coordinator, said the home was the first of 15 in the Treseder development in Sandy, Utah, to be built to the Department of Energy's Zero Energy Ready Home program.
The 5,226 square-foot also meets the EPA Indoor airPLUS requirements, including the use of low- or no-VOC structural wood products, primer, paint, cabinets, and flooring. For further energy savings, all of the home’s lighting is provided by LEDs. The home also has ENERGY STAR appliances and ceiling fans and a programmable thermostat.
