Optimum energy efficiency
Rowe’s construction objective was to achieve ultimate thermal comfort and superior air quality. To achieve reach this goal, he hired Walden, N.Y.-based Aaron Ourada with Radiant Technology LLC. Ourada prioritized comfort at the top, followed closely by sustainability and energy efficiency. He achieved these goals by installing Uponor radiant heating and cooling systems, filtered whole-house ventilation and automated humidity controls.

Achieving ENERGY STAR® recognition at home
The home’s in-floor radiant heating and cooling is embedded in concrete for each floor; the basement is slab on grade, and the second and third floors are poured concrete over ICF decking. The concrete thermal mass construction acts as a thermal energy flywheel to offset overnight peak loads so the mass stores energy and regulates temperate fluctuations.
For radiant cooling, the GSHP system reverses from heating mode to cooling, charging the buffer tank with chilled water instead of hot water. A variable-speed mixing pump controls the water temperature from the buffer tank to the radiant floor cooling system.
To say the homeowner is pleased is an understatement. “The builder guided me through our joint vision for a highly energy-efficient house comprising a geothermal energy source, radiant heating and cooling, insulating spray foam and web-enabled monitoring and control systems,” he says. “All the planning paid off.”
