Only a few builders throughout the country meet the rigorous guidelines for their houses to be considered a Zero Ready Energy Home. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), every certified Zero Energy Ready Home features high-efficiency insulation, windows, air sealing and space conditioning systems that help surround you with even temperatures, low-humidity, and quiet in every room on every floor. Being a Zero Ready Energy Ready Home Partner means The US Department of Energy recognizes Insight Homes as a leader in providing energy efficient houses. It’s an honor to be noticed for how we build our new homes in Delaware, the positive effects our building practices have on our buyers' quality of life, and the guarantees we put in place to give homeowners peace of mind.
Outside of a monthly mortgage, heating, cooling and water temperature make up the largest cost of owning and maintaining a home. We feel that a better performing home requires less maintenance over time and saves you money in the long run (lower power bills are just a bonus). Samuel Rashkin, Chief Architect for DOE Building Technologies Office, said “Zero Energy Ready Homes like those constructed by Insight Homes are the homes of the future because they live, work, and last better with incredibly low or no energy costs. And what’s exciting for American home buyers, they are available today thanks to leading builders across the country.”
Our science starts at construction! All Insight Homes are built with an Energy Heel. This improves insulation throughout your entire home and eliminates hot and cold spots as well as uneven temperatures in your room. We don't just build new homes in Delaware, we build to standards which according to the U.S. Department of Energy, puts our homes at a level of performance that only 1% of all home builders in the country meet. The rigorous DOE Zero Energy Ready Home National Guidelines Insight Homes has committed to are at least 40%-50% more energy efficient than a typical new home. Find out why it's just a better house.
