Landmark Homes has introduced affordable net zero homes to the Edmonton new home market. Located in the southeast neighbourhood of Maple Crest, the home will have a starting price of $399,737, which includes the lot, home, garage, net zero upgrades and GST. The show home, located at 2686 Maple Way NW, opened to the public on Saturday, March 18.
“For ten years we’ve been diligently working to drive down the cost of net zero energy homes,” says Reza Nasseri, CEO and founder of Landmark Homes.
“We saw an opportunity to rethink what’s possible and use forward-looking planning to create an ultra-energy efficient home that is attainable by the majority of single-family homebuyers in Edmonton,” says Mike Haupt, general manager of Landmark Homes’ single-family division. “The homes we’re designing today are highly replicable, affordable and scalable.”
A net zero home is designed to be more comfortable, more efficient, and healthier than a traditional home and offers a wide range of benefits including:
- Low annual operating costs – utility bills fall to an all-time low and stay low year round. Homeowners are even credited for the energy they export back to the grid.
- Protection from future increases in energy prices
- Exceptional comfort all year round – advanced construction methods and materials means even temperatures throughout the home
- Excellent indoor air quality with a built-in filtered fresh air system
- Tightly built and well insulated, a net zero home is quieter
“Net-zero homes are a real game changer and the ultimate expression of energy efficiency,” says David Dodge, Chair of Energy Efficiency Alberta. “We know that Alberta builders are leaders in building super energy efficient homes in Canada and now Landmark Homes is proving they are affordable.”
Landmark Homes is preparing to build net zero homes in Edmonton’s neighbourhoods of Graydon Hill and Keswick later this year.
