SOLAR & GEOTHERMAL HOME

This Haydenville home was built in 2002, and we have updated it recently. It is a model of alternative energy ingenuity.

Originally it was fitted with a propane-fired Viessman Vitosol 200 wall-mounted condensing boiler for heat. A 93-gallon stainless steel vertical dual coil hot water storage tank was also installed to work with the Viessman Vitosol 200 vacuum tube solar collectors on the back roof. The Trane multispeed air-handling duct system worked with an outside condensing unit to deliver the air conditioning.

In 2009 an Econar ground-source heat pump system was added using a field slinky piping system (click here to see installation photos). This system uses geothermal energy to fuel both heating and cooling needs. The heat collecting coils are buried under the lawn, invisible to man and bear alike.

The home has a radiant heating system programmed with a low temperature for 90% of the square footage, and a higher temperature setting for the bedrooms and the bathroom towel warmers.
