MAISON ORION is partnering with the U.S. Department of Energy to bring homes of the future to families today.

Zero Energy Ready Homes meet the extraordinary levels of excellence and quality specified by the U.S. Department of Energy guidelines. These stringent criteria exceed the standards for ENERGY STAR Certified Homes and cover these six categories:

  • Healthful Environment - Every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home has a comprehensive package of measures to minimize dangerous pollutants, provide continuous fresh air, and effectively filter the air you breathe.

  • Comfort Plus - Superior insulation, windows, air sealing and space conditioning systems included in every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home surround you with even temperatures, low-humidity, and quiet in every room on every floor

  • Advanced Technology - Every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home begins with solid building science specified by ENERGY STAR for Homes, and then adds advanced technologies and practices from DOE’s world class research program, Building America.

  • Ultra Efficient - Compared to a typical home, an ultra efficient Zero Energy Ready Home is inexpensive to own. In fact, every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home is so energy efficient, a small solar electric system can easily offset most, or all, of your annual energy consumption. We call this Zero Net-Energy Ready.

  • Quality Built - Advanced construction practices and technologies are specified for every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home. Then they are enforced by independent verifiers with detailed checklists and prescribed diagnostics.

  • Durability - The advanced levels of energy savings, comfort, health, durability, quality and future performance in every DOE Zero Energy Ready Home provide value that will stand the test of time, and will meet and exceed forthcoming code requirements.
