On The Road to Zero Net Energy – Performance Sealed Attic Available At Sierra Crest!

April 5, 2016

DeYoungProperties-Performance-Sealed-Attic-Design-1The Performance Sealed Attic design used in our new De Young SmartHome Icon Series floorplans has been developed over the last four years. It is the culmination of hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of research, analysis, and field testing.

To develop the design, the De Young team assembled an expert building science consortium, from both private and government organizations, including De Young Properties, Johns Manville, Broken Drum Insulation, DuctTesters, PG&E, TRC, BIRAenergy, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, among others. Given the climate zone Fresno/Clovis resides in, which is 3B (IECC) and 13 (CEC), we have specifically designed our attic to maximize energy efficiency and comfort, while maintaining affordability as well as the same structural integrity as all other De Young homes.

The reason for such determination to redesign our attic is twofold: to achieve Zero Net Energy more effectively, and to ensure compliance with future building codes.
