Homes for Sale in Sparrow Landing at Larch Park, Edmonton
Sparrow Landing at Larch Park is excitingly Edmonton’s first Net-Zero community and Landmark Homes is the leading driver on this idea. Net-zero homes only started being seriously considered about a decade ago but now Landmark is proposing that all their homes from 2015 will be built in this fashion.
The concept involves a streamline process for producing homes that dramatically reduces waste, increases efficiency, and reduces carbon pollution by 10-12 tonnes for every home they build. This process is referred to ass panelization, which is where you build the walls and other building components in a controlled environment and then assemble on site. As well, they go further with improving the energy performance of all aspects in the home. The products include Energy Star appliances, compact fluorescent and LED bulbs, programmable thermostats, and high efficiency water heaters. All of these details are helping the homes to get a new standard home specification up Energuide 82-83.
