Marquis Las Vegas - TNAH2009

  • Description: The home's three stories are conditioned using a gas-engine driven heat pump, mini split system. The system uses air handlers contained within the ceiling assembly for individual zone air distribution. The heat pumps have a performance value for heating and cooling of COP 1.5. Tankless water heaters, which are fueled by natural gas, provide hot water to the home, while a solar thermal hot water system heats swimming pool water. A 10.64 kW photovoltaic system, consisting of 56 solar panels that capture solar energy from both panel faces, generates electricity. LED and compact fluorescent lighting further add to the home's efficiency.
