Over 18,000 attendees are expected to attend Solar Power International at Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas for the four day event September 10-13.
Fifty years ago radiant heating might have sounded like science fiction. Today there’s a saying about concrete and underfloor heating systems that goes, “friends don’t let friends pour concrete without PEX in it”.
The best way for consumers to control their electric bills, and help the environment, is to reduce consumption.
Comparing self-regulating radiant heating to traditional forced-air and renewable energy systems reveals impressive energy savings and performance using the radiant system.
Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) inventor of the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, has many years of proven success.
There is a macro shift in the economy towards businesses that can align the self interest with the broader interest.
In two months of spring and summer the home produced as much energy as it used.
The way we live at home is changing and the modern home is very much focussed on convenience.
Due to the self-regulating properties of the STEP system, the molecular structure of the heating elements only allow the consumption of energy that is needed to maintain the heat at a given location.
Innovative green home technology is making energy efficient and sustainable way of living more accessible than ever.
Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Home Design brings a standardized approach to new residential Wi-Fi network design to help ensure whole-home connectivity.
Because the goals for the house focused on reducing electrical usage, the Hansons call the project "Ohm Sweet Ohm."
While homeowners show that they are willing to take steps to conserve energy, they are not likely to sacrifice their comfort over savings
Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) invented the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, but that is just the beginning: it still needs a stronger government and industry recognition.
Often times, the early use of an invention is far different than what the future holds for it. Such is the case for nano particles and their Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) properties.
Nanoparticles, the microscopic particles having a very high surface area to volume ratio, will likely be your source to future heating comfort and efficiency.
Water is just as precious a resource as energy in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.
Photovoltaic (PV) panels and other onsite renewables generate DC, but these systems still incur losses. Grid-connected renewables require an inverter to convert their DC to AC for the grid, even though it is changed immediately back to DC for onsite use.
One of the top goals of the Proud Green Home of Louisville was to create a highly energy efficient yet very livable home.
After studying electrical heat options and other radiant heat systems requiring maintenance, one homeowner decided to go with STEP Warmfloor.
