Look whose Net Zero manufactured homes have caught the attention of Green Technology World! Hallmark Southwest is proud to be recognized for our new Net Zero energy efficiency option, which is capable of providing environmentally sustainable energy production for valued buyers of our manufactured homes.
How does the option work? Along with solar photovoltaic systems, Hallmark Southwest also provides other Net Zero features, which include:
-Proprietary ventilation systems
- Efficient heating and cooling systems
- Solar hot water systems
- Industry leading insulation
- Programmable thermostats
Not to mention exceedingly tight construction designed to maximize thermal efficiency, vinyl Low-e energy efficient windows, tankless water heaters, energy efficient lighting and on-demand hot water. As you can see, this is a far cry from throwing up some solar panels and calling it Net Zero! Our Director of Business Development, Luca Brammer, explains:
“Any builder can say their home is ‘Net-Zero’ by placing an excessive amount of solar panels on their roof, but this is not the most efficient way of making a home Net-Zero… At Hallmark, we make our homes extremely energy efficient through the use of proprietary elements, drastically reducing each home’s electrical demands without altering the lifestyles of the people who live in our homes. We then use the minimum amount of solar panels to accomplish Net-Zero efficiency.”
That’s it, in a nutshell. Solar panels, yes; but so, so much more. To learn about Net Zero manufactured homes, contact Hallmark Southwest today. We will be glad to send you more information.
