Energy Smart Floor Plans

What does a floor plan design have to do with energy efficiency? At Energy Smart Home Design, we say, a lot! Many home designers and builders believe that a home’s size is the primary predictor of relative energy efficiency. Most admit that better windows, doors, energy saving appliances and lighting, increased insulation and a tight building envelope all contribute to lower HERS Scores and lower energy usage. They’d be right! But we know there is much more to the story.

We design all our energy efficient floor plans with all the mechanical systems & ducts in conditioned space. This means the home will require a significantly smaller mechanical system. A smaller system means it will consume far less energy. This means a 2200 sq. ft. home’s average electrical bill would be a mere $69 per month, or just $825 annually! It should be noted this is without the addition of solar panels!!

Net-Zero Floor Plans

Net-Zero Energy Homes have an average annual power cost of zero dollars! More Net-Zero homes have been built from Energy Smart Home Plans than any other source. Our homes are already so energy efficient, it requires far fewer solar panels to achieve Net-Zero Energy.

Modifications can be made to any of our super energy efficient floor plans. We can also custom design a floor plan just for you. Just let us know what you need!
