Imery Group is proud to announce the completion of one of the first Zero Energy Ready Homes in the State of Georgia. The 3,764 -square-feet custom home in the north Atlanta community of Alpine Canyon, in Saxton Woods, will be open to the public on Thursday, July 28, from 6:30-8 p.m.
As defined by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) program, a Zero Energy Ready Home offers “a whole new level of home performance, with rigorous requirements that ensure outstanding levels of energy savings, comfort, health, and durability.”
DOE Zero Energy Ready Homes are at least 40-50 percent more energy efficient than a typical new home. Certi-fied homes are third-party verified to meet high standards for indoor air quality, efficient HVAC design, water conser-vation, ENERGY STAR appliances and fixtures, as well as numerous other best-in-class building science practices.
As the name indicates, the addition of a renewable energy system (such as solar panels) would allow a Zero En-ergy Ready Home to offset all or most of its annual energy consumption. The home in Chamblee does not yet have such a system but is designed to make the addition of a system simple in the future, as the cost of residential solar, wind and geothermal continues to drop.
Imery Group is one of only two builders in Georgia that have certified homes under the DOE ZERH program since it launched in 2013. This will be Imery Group’s fourth ZERH-certified home.
“We’re so proud to bring our clients’ vision for this home into existence. The contemporary design will be an amazing setting for family life,” Imery Group CEO Luis Imery said. “But just as importantly it will be a healthy home, and one that helps provide financial stability as the costs of water and energy increase in the decades ahead.”
