Zero carbon emission construction comes to Washington State! See

Our house was designed from the ground up to take advantage of the sun. Its passive solar layout means we have lots of windows facing south and few on the north side of the house. The house itself is built from structural insulated panels (SIPs), manufactured in Fife, WA, by Premier SIPs. An air-to-water heat pump, manufactured by Unico in St. Louis, lets us heat water for our radiant concrete floors and domestic hot water at over 200% efficiency. Triple-pane vinyl windows by Vinyltek were a cost-effective way to bring in lots of light and passive solar heat without losing much heat at night. We also made sure to select some of the most energy-efficient appliances on the market. By conserving energy as much as possible, we are able to offset all our electricity usage with a 6kw solar electric system, installed by Sunergy Systems in Ballard.
