Air conditioning

Air conditioning for new & home retrofits, to make your home a Zero Energy Home.
 
We can model and help you build a Zero Energy Ready Home and install the air conditioning, heat pumps or super energy efficient mini split heat pumps, correctly with 10 - 12 year manufacturer warranties. We also design and install solar water heating and solar electric systems to lower your electric bill further and provide electricity in emergencies.

Energy modeling helps determine which energy saving features are most cost effective. Energy modeling software is an important design tool that helps builders identify the least expensive measures required to create a zero energy home. Modeling should be conducted in multiple iterations of the design, analyzing the energy impact of different design choices, such as a ground source heat pump versus an air source heat pump, or comparing the impact of R-13 wall insulation with that of R-19 wall insulation.
 

Energy modeling can be done as soon as the designer creates preliminary plans with dimensions, elevations, basic floor plan, and windows and doors. The plans can then be adjusted based on the modeling results so that the project will reach the net zero energy goal at the lowest cost possible. Decisions made during energy modeling will be reflected in the final plan and construction documents. The payback on the costs of energy modeling itself – a matter of a couple of months – is surprisingly short.
 

Any energy-saving upgrade that costs less per kWh saved than the cost per kWh of installed PV would be considered cost effective and should be integrated into the plan. By using energy modeling to help ensure the cost effectiveness of energy saving measures, the added costs of constructing a zero energy home can be as little as 5% of the sales price, after rebates and tax incentives, depending on the state.
