In our previous post ‘What is Net-Zero’ we talked about what net-zero means, and gave it a simple yet precise definition:

 “a net-zero house produces as much energy as it consumes on an annualized basis.”

Now that the definition has been provided, let’s talk about how we think net-zero can be achieved.

The Logix ICF Net-Zero Approach

  • We start with a Logix ICF Net-Zero Ready building envelope. This can reduce the HVAC by 40-60% when you combine a Logix ICF wall with other super-efficient wall components. Since Logix ICF walls are so incredibly airtight, a ventilation system for replacement air is integrated into the design.

  • We suggest that as you outfit your Net-Zero Ready home with appliances you should to choose the most energy efficient models on the market as well as make an effort to use renewable sources of energy whenever possible. As time goes on and more advanced appliance designs and sources of renewable energy become available you’ll want to incorporate them into your home.
  • Lastly, in order to make your house truly net-zero, we reccommend offsetting the remaining energy load with a green energy source and use existing fossil fuels as sparingly and efficiently as possible.
