  • Description: The homes will incorporate the prototype's energy-efficient building techniques including solar control glazing, structural insulated panels (SIPs) in walls (R-28) and roof (R-42), architectural overhangs provide summer shading, white membrane roof, insulated stem foundation wall creates an insulated crawlspace for services distribution within the thermal envelope, air handler and ducts are located inside the "thermal envelope," integration of both hot water and space conditioning systems eliminates the need for a separate furnace, sSolar preheat collector with integral collector storage acts in auxiliary to water and space heating.
