One of the latest building trends for 2016 is the Net-Zero home. Net-Zero homes are built using the latest energy-efficient products and appliances so that the home consumes as much energy as it produces. These homes have the potential to save homeowners money on their monthly energy bill. As well, they produce less carbon emissions so they are better for the environment. It is estimated that by 2030 all new homes built in Canada will be Net-Zero friendly.

JELD-WEN is proud to be a part of this exciting new initiative. As part of a national demonstration project last year, 5 Canadian builders were selected to build five Net-Zero homes each. JELD-WEN Tripane windows were widely used in the production of these homes.

Recently, JELD-WEN has partnered up with other like-minded organizations, to develop net-zero building training sessions for builders. Our tripane windows feature three panes of glass separated by argon gas. This is one of our most energy-efficient products to date, making it an ideal component for net-zero homes. We are pleased to be teaming up with like-minded companies who value energy efficiency and innovation. Learn more about Net-Zero.
