MIWD Supplies MI EnergyCore Windows for Net-Zero Vision House Tucson
March 27, 2013
MI Windows and Doors―along with Green Builder Media, green building expert John Wesley Miller, and architect Hank Krzysik―is participating in the Vision House Tucson, a sustainable demonstration home under construction in Arizona's Armory Park del Sol neighborhood, which includes more than 90 single-family, energy-efficient homes. The project focuses on green design; advanced technologies; and the utilization of innovative, site-specific solutions to enhance the home’s overall sustainability. On average, homeowners at Armory Park del Sol pay only $300 per year to heat and cool their homes, and use less than half the water of a standard Tucson home, according to a MIWD release.
Vision House Tucson is expected to be the first net-zero energy house using the City/County Net-Zero Energy Building Standard. MIWD is furnishing the home with MI EnergyCore windows with high-performance low-E glass and patented AirCell frame technology. The Environmental Protection Agency recently recognized MI EnergyCore windows as Energy Star Most Efficient for 2013.
