A HERS rater for many years and Certified Passive House Consultant in New York State, homeowner Troy Hodas knew he wanted a quality built home for his family that didn’t compromise on comfort, indoor air quality or energy-efficiency. He also wanted a home that would last for generations to come.
Troy chose to build a high performance, net zero Logix XtraComfort™ Home, constructed with Logix Insulated Concrete Forms.
A Net Zero Energy home produces as much energy as it uses on an annual basis, depending on occupant behavior. In terms of technology, materials and efficiency standards, net zero homes are about 15 years ahead of where the building industry is today.
This single family, 2-story home with finished basement was constructed with Logix Platinum Series R-28 plus D-Rv R-8 insert panels, providing incredible R-36 walls. Logix Pro Buck™ was also used in all window and door openings for complete thermal stability within the home.
Well, the proof is in the pudding — recently at the Hodas home, the power went out for five hours while the temperature was a chilly 28 degrees F outside. The inside temperature of the home was 69.8 degrees F when the power went out and was an incredible 69.4 degrees when the power came on five hours later!
The Hodas Net Zero Logix XtraComfort™ Home has been submitted to the 2017 Logix Awards for Most Outstanding Small Residential Home. Click here to register to attend the free live webcast of the 2017 Logix Awards.
