The Building America North Texas Zero Energy Home is systems-engineered to achieve a quality home, that works-safe, comfortable, healthy, efficient, and is easy to own and operate. Systems-Engineering is a fancy term for coordinated, comprehensive high performance. Cars are a familiar example of systems-engineering the engine, the transmission, the brakes, the chassis are all matched in design and operation, to work as a system. It means the same for and we should expect the same of our homes. The building shell, the windows, the HVAC, the hot water, the electrical are designed and constructed recognizing the impacts these systems have on each other and, ultimately, on home performance.
