What are net zero homes?

A net zero home generate as much energy as they use over a whole year. The best net zero homes combine state of the art systems with simple easy to use technology to be self-sufficient for most home owners.

Net zero homes are better for you, your bank balance, the environment, and long-term sustainability. Eco homes are also more comfortable to live in, quieter, with natural temperature control and improved air quality – and no rising utility costs to worry about.

For more details, see our Energy Efficient Homes page.

Eco homes

Eco homes take the net zero home further through the use of eco-friendly and sustainable building materials. Wherever possible, an eco home will use locally sourced materials such as wood, stone and concretes produced with minimal impact during their manufacture.

Also known as green houses, eco homes can also feature alternative building materials that may be made from reclaimed or sustainable items, include natural products such as straw. It may use recycled and reclaimed materials that reproduce the look and feel of more expensive imported materials, such as marble or stone.

An eco-home will involve as few ‘material miles’ as possible, using local suppliers, locally produced timber and stone, and local labour to build it.

Most of all it will include innovative solutions and design features to lower greenhouse gas emissions and reduce the overall carbon footprint both during building and a lifetime of occupancy.
