GHI member renovation aims for LEED and pre certifies zero energy capable/0 Comments/in Local, Certified Homes, Certified LEED, LEED Platinum, Michigan, Project Type, Single-Family Projects, Zero Energy Capable/by Brett Little
Baker+Myers SmartHaus is a LEED registered home aiming for Platinum v4.1 and is pre-certified to be Zero Energy Capable brought to you by our member company Smart Haus Wexler / Kollman and verified by members Eco Achievers.
It will ideally use about a tenth the heating energy of a built- to-code home, and about 109% less energy overall. The home has a preliminary -9 HERS rating.
The home is powered by a 8.9kW solar PV grid-tied array, and was designed so the solar electric array produces as much energy as the home uses.
As a single-family deep energy re-hab, we were able to recycle much of the original 1960’s split level into the new home. Indoor air quality and occupant health were primary objectives as well. No-added-formaldehyde cabinetry and trim materials, no-VOC paints, and Greenguard certified sealants, caulks, and adhesives were used.
An on demand-controlled ventilation system (CERV) provides superior air quality. Ductless Mitsubishi minisplit heat pumps provide energy-efficient heating, cooling, and dehumidification.
The home and site are interlaced with each component working symbiotically together. All storm water is captured and directed to landscape features designed to harvest for garden to table enjoyment. Rear deck leads to roof garden with cistern and cold frames.
SmartHaus was fortunate to work with inspired owners seeking a healthy, modest low-energy house. As with all our projects, here we sought the harmony of performance and aesthetics, integrated into the fabric of the community.
You can meet the owners on our virtual tour of their home during the net zero homeowner roundtable recorded webinar
