Carlington, Ontario

Right near the Experimental Farm in Carlington, is Ottawa’s first Net-Zero home development project by RND Construction. In this new development, nine homes were built (3 singles, 6 semis) above and beyond the code for homes in Canada, making them extremely energy-efficient, environmentally friendly, and Net-Zero ready. The addition of solar panels will make them true Net-Zero.

These homes have received several labels and certifications including EnerGuide, ESNH, R-2000, and are all Net-Zero ready. All the homes heating and cooling systems are managed by energy-efficient air-source Dettson heat pumps, and the AeroBarrier was completed by Airtight Home Technologies. This is the first net-zero ready community in the Ottawa area.
