April 27 & 28 from 11:00 – 5:00
2617 N. Nottingham Street, Arlington VA.
The Energy House is proud to announce its next Education and Demonstration Showcase, Energy House Six which will be open for tours on April 27 and 28 from 11:00 – 5:00 at 2617 N. Nottingham Street in Arlington VA. This new home is being showcased by the Energy House to our friends, customers, and Nottingham street neighbors so that we can highlight the energy systems offered in this green project.
We have teamed with Arlington Designer Homes LLC to showcase the newest green home in Arlington. Andrew Moore, of Arlington Designer Homes was recognized in 2011 as NCBIA’s Custom Builder of the Year. With this new home their tradition continues.
This home is going to be for sale in the coming weeks but Andrew has graciously allowed us to study his ENERGY STAR home and add some energy monitoring. He is also eager to show all of you energy enthusiasts what energy efficiency can look like in a new, modern home.
There are a number of firsts for this Energy House:
First brand new home being presented by the Energy House
First green builder being featured by the Energy House
First time the Energy House has come to Arlington
This new green home has been certified by ENERGY STAR 3.0 as one of the top homes built in Arlington VA, this past year. The N. Nottingham property has achieved a HERS Index rating of 57 which make this house over 40% more energy efficient than a house built to code.
Code House Estimated Energy Costs……$3,900.00 Per Year
This Green Home built by Arlington Designer Homes LLC is 43% more energy efficient than the “average” new home and will cost the homeowner as projected by the Energy House;
Arlington Designer Home Energy Costs……$2.225.00 Per Year
That is a savings of $1,675.00 per year and that does not take into account the rising costs of utilities that increase each year.
In the life of a home that would be much more than a $50,000.00 savings given energy inflation (5%) on a 30 year mortgage.
The N. Nottingham property is loaded with additional energy features that you do not normally see in new construction. Things like passive solar gain, a green roof, water reclaiming rain gardens, LED lighting throughout the house and clean sustainable building process that make it a safe and clean environment for the family that will live in the home.
All this, along with a modern open floor plan, four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, basement family room, private study, detached garage and many more design features that you need to see for yourself.
The Energy House has proven that the home built by Arlington Designer Homes saves you money on your energy usage each and every month and that these savings more than pay for the cost of the green improvements to the property. This is a winning combination for the homebuyers who will be looking at this property and comparing it to other homes on the market.

See everyone on April 27 & 28!
Very Best Regards,
