It’s been a long road, but we did it!
With the help of the building scientists at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), LifeStyle Homes has successfully built the first and only U.S. Department of Energy “Zero-Energy Ready Home” in Brevard County.
If you’ve been following the home’s progress through this blog, you know that this home is unlike any other on the Space Coast. It adheres to the highest levels of energy-efficiency, durability and sustainability, allowing it to last hundreds of years.
LifeStyle’s “Zero-Energy Ready Home” has achieved multiple national-level certifications, including:
- DOE Challenge Home (now called “Zero-Energy Ready Home”)
- EPA ENERGY STAR Version 3 Home
- EPA Indoor AirPLUS
- DOE Challenge Home Quality Program
In addition to adhering to extremely energy-efficient building criteria, the home is also solar powered. Its rooftop is equipped with a 6.84 KW solar system, which allows it to perform at a BETTER THAN ZERO-ENERGY performance. In fact, the home scored a -8 on the HERS rating index. (A score of zero on the HERS rating index marks a zero-energy performance, meaning the home is expected to produce as much energy as its owners consume on a yearly basis.)
LifeStyle’s “Zero-Energy Ready Home” is located at 2825 Jolena Drive, Melbourne (inside the Pineda Springs subdivision.) It is our four-bedroom, three-bathroom Capri floor plan, and is currently for sale at $380,000.
This is your opportunity to live in one of the most advanced homes in all of America. In terms of energy conservation, the building materials and practices used to create this home are the highest in the country as determined by numerous tests and studies undertaken by the U.S. Department of Energy.
