RESNET® Update: Northwest Homes Strive for Net Zero
June 26, 2018
RESNET® recently shared an exciting update: More than 2,000 homes built in 2017 obtained a HERS Index Score of 40 or less, which RESNET considers the threshold for net-zero-energy homes. Thirty-two of these impressive homes are in the Northwest!
The PHIUS+ 2018 Pilot is now open for use. PHIUS developed the draft 2018 PHIUS+ Standard to more accurately reflect the nuance of project types and size across climate zones and the relationship between envelope and floor area. PHIUS+ 2018 is the first updated revision, and PHIUS will phase it in through 2018, eventually replacing PHIUS+ 2015.
