Zero energy and zero energy ready construction is becoming an important differentiator for builders in markets that trend toward environmental sustainability. That’s the case in Connecticut, where homebuilder Brookside Development is using propane appliances to reach energy benchmarks that meet zero energy ready requirements.
“We’ve integrated a series of home technologies in which propane happens to be a player,” says Mark Nuzzolo, owner of Brookside Development. “Our focus is to build more sustainable, durable homes that are more comfortable and have energy bills that don’t eat homeowners alive.”
In our latest case study, Nuzzolo and Brookside Development partner DJ Collins explain how choosing high-efficiency propane appliances can reduce their homes’ total energy consumption and emissions while still providing homeowners the performance and comfort they expect.
