View Course Syllabus

Experience this in-field virtual site tour of a Noyes Development high performance single-family spec home with features that provide greater energy, water, and resource efficiency and create an overall healthier living environment. Participants will learn how this project achieved Earth Advantage Platinum + Zero Energy, Energy Trust of Oregon EPS & Solar Ready standards, and how these cost savings serve as a benefit for the homeowner.

Participants will hear from Mike Frey, Vice President of Noyes Development Co., and Stephen Aiguier, Founder and President of Green Hammer, as they explore the under-construction details that go into outstanding 'Zero Energy Ready' performance homes.

This site visit takes place at a Noyes Development subdivision where all homes are 'Zero Energy Ready' certified thanks to construction approaches and systems that significantly reduce power demands and allow rooftop solar PV to supply all the energy that will be needed for the homes.

This project features several highly efficient and healthy home characteristics, including:

  • Advanced building envelope and air tightness (1.3 ACH, super insulation, raised heal truss, advanced framing)
  • High efficiency mechanical systems (11 HSPF ducted heat pump, .96 tankless water heater)
  • Horizontal duct system located within the conditioned space
  • Super windows (.24 u-value, fourth surface low-e coating)
  • Healthy home features (balanced ventilation, MERV 13 filters, garage exhaust fan, low VOC, green label carpets)
  • Durability aspects (rain-screen wall system, enhanced flashing details, cement siding, insulated doors)
  • Water conservation measures (efficient toilets/faucets, ENERGY STAR appliances, smart irrigation)
