Looking for a home that uses 90 percent less energy than a standard home? Well, here’s one. And, and it’s deep in the heart of Texas.
The first home in Texas certified to the International Passive House standard has been completed and is on the market in Dallas, with an asking price of $1.145 million.
The 3,230-square-foot home was finished in March, and electricity use averaged $1 per day, even with the air conditioning set at 71 degrees and the heat set at 69 degrees, and the home abuzz with final detail work.
The home was built by Kyle Fagin and his son Connor, owners of Fagin Partners, to meet Passive House standards that call for a home to use about 90 percent less energy than a traditional home and have high air quality as well. The Fagins tapped Ryall Sheridan Architects in New York City, a Passive House certified architectural firm, for the home design.
