This energy efficient contemporary passive solar home sits on a mostly wooded 10.583 acre lot.The house is set on the compass giving it a glass southern exposure to absorb the winter sun, with eves to shield it in the summer. The glass solarium has a rock bed under the quarry tile floor, which reflects heat back into the house. Venting at the bottom of the solarium and the top of the balcony allows for natural convection to cool the house. The house is constructed with 2x6 construction, yielding higher insulation ratings in the walls and ceilings. A high efficiency Goodman 5 ton heat pump system provides the central heating and air conditioning. This house is perfect to have solar panels added to get maximum efficiency and potentially operate independent of the electric grid. A 16kw Generac generator automatically goes on in a power outage. The basement sump pump has a battery backup and the sump pump is on a dedicated line to the generator.
