The 2019 New American Home is a model of energy and water efficiency, indoor air quality, and comfort. Certified by several national green building programs for its performance, the home presented special (if not unique) challenges for design-builder Sun West Custom Homes and its various trade and supply partners. Join Rich Binsacca, Editor-in-Chief of Professional Builder magazine, Drew Smith, COO of Two Trails Sustainable Building Consultants, Daniel Coletti, President of Sun West Custom Homes, and Bridgette Slater, Director of Preconstruction at Sun West Custom Homes for a deep dive into the "how factors" that enabled The 2019 New American Home to achieve HERS-45, a projected $3,000 in annual energy savings, extreme insulation and air-tightness (with controlled fresh-air ventilation), and a nearly 60% reduction in potable water use.
