DOE Zero Energy Ready Home Case Study: Sterling Brook Custom Homes, Double Oak, TX

Case study of a DOE Zero Energy Ready home in Double Oak, TX, north of Dallas, that scored a HERS 44 without PV. The 3,752-ft2 two-story home served as an energy-efficient model home for the custom home builder: 1,300 visitors toured the home, thousands more learned about the home’s advanced construction via the webpage, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest. The home has advanced framed R-23 walls with rigid foam sheathing, an open-cell spray foam-insulated roof, tankless gas water heaters, a timered fresh air intake, high-efficiency HVAC, 100% LED lighting, a remote energy management system, and a storm shelter in the garage floor.
