When completed in fall 2019, Brinner Novak will be a GreenPoint Rated single-family home in Solana Beach. It will be all-electric, other than the fireplace and cooktop, and is striving to achieve Net Zero Energy via energy-efficient construction and a rooftop solar array. The home has an ultra-tight envelope and high R-value insulation, which greatly reduces heating and cooling requirements. The tight envelope was achieved by spraying a non-toxic, airborne sealant, AeroBarrier, into the home before insulation, which sealed any minuscule cracks and penetrations. The home will have all energy- and water-efficient appliances and plumbing fixtures to reduce utility bills and preserve environmental resources.
