Recently, Newport’s Matt Evans completed the first couple of steps in verifying the DOE Zero Energy Ready Home constructed by Under the Sun Building and Remodeling, LLC. The home, located in Battenville, NY, is still in the construction phase but Matt was able to complete the Energy Star thermal enclosure checklist as well as an initial blower doortest. The home scored 1.16 ACH50, well below the Energy Star standard of 4 ACH50 in version 3.
