The US Department of Energy (DOE) has certified Module’s first home, built for the Wilburn Family in Pittsburgh, PA, as a Zero Energy Ready Home.
The home, titled the “Latham” house, is in the Friendship neighborhood of Pittsburgh and was given the certification shortly after its completion. The certification represents “a whole new level of home performance.”
The certification requires builders to register their project with the DOE and follow the program requirements to ensure high levels of energy savings, indoor air quality, thermal comfort, health and durability. Specific requirements for the certification include simple energy efficient practices like installing ENERGY STAR qualified appliances and fixtures to more complicated projects like a thermal enclosure system and abiding by the EPA’s indoor airPLUS program.
Module has opened the home up for tours, sign up for one here.
