Mechanical Systems in a High-Performance House
In this video, take a look at the inner workings of the ProHOME project and the systems needed to heat, cool, and ventilate this airtight home.
Builders are installing the mechanical systems needed for the ProHOME. The roof is designed to face south for optimal use of a future photovoltaic system. A series of minisplits will take care of heating and cooling. An energy-efficient heat-pump hot water heater serves the house’s needs. There is optimized ductwork in place for a conventional clothes drier. The garage also features its own ventilation system. Watch this video to learn more.
