Getting to Beyond Net-Zero

Achieving a net-zero energy rating at the VISION House Tucson:

  • The Rheem Net-Zero Air and Water System was used for the very first time, helping to obtain a -17 HERS rating.
  • Johns Manville insulation was used in the attic and in the thermal mass storage wall system helping to create a tight building envelope and super energy efficiency.
  • When a home is as efficient as VISION House Tucson it's important to have proper ventilation. Panasonic ventilation fans help with this.
