- Net-Zero Energy - This term describes any structure that produces more electrical energy each month and year than it consumes. Every E3D Home built is Net-Zero Energy efficient! This is achieved by using the latest in cutting-edge residential and commercial designs and solar-grid technologies.
- Near-Zero Water usage - Home water use varies considerably, depending upon the number of people in a household, plumbing fixtures, appliances, and other factors. The largest water users in the home are toilets, clothes washers, faucets, and showers. About 41% of indoor water use in a home goes toward flushing the toilet and 33% goes to bathing! E3D Homes have the most water-conserving appliances and fixtures that exist. A partial list includes WaterSense, EnergyStar, and Stealth Technology toilets.
- Nearly-Zero Maintenance - Over time, annual maintenance costs average 1% to 3% of a home’s initial price. Without regular upkeep, overall property values are affected …and most lending institutions agree. That means owners of a typical $125,000 home should plan to budget $1,250 to $3,750 per year for ongoing upkeep and replacements. With these costs in mind, E3D high-performance homes are designed and built to have Nearly-zero maintenance costs over its 100 + year lifetime. The homes have steel roofs, stucco exteriors, and no wood trim.
The advantages of homes with efficient uses of space exceed basic economics. Such dwellings change the way people live and are attractive to people who want to lead a less cluttered and complicated life. Smaller homes represent not just a reduction in dimensions but emphasize design over size. They incorporate technological advances of space and energy-saving equipment, fixtures, and appliances. Also, they maximize every square inch of space!
The Eco-Bio dynamic E3D Home has been designed and certified to surpass the most stringent energy and environmental standards set by the EPA and Energy Building Codes in America today. These sustainable homes far exceed those building standards.
