The first speculative Emerald Star certified home in Seattle goes net zero energy with solar panels and innovative building science.
It's good to know that comfort can also be very energy efficient.
Heating and cooling choices can make or break the energy efficiency, and affordability of a home.
To further expand the energy efficiency of electric radiant heat many homeowners are integrating solar panels with their STEP Warmfloor radiant heating systems.
Standard forced air heating has one thermostat governing the overall temperature of a home. If that thermostat calls for more heat due to its location and ambient surroundings, the entire home gets a blast of costly heat.
STEP Warmfloor radiant heating systems operate with safe, low voltage AC or DC electrical current requiring no furnace or mechanical room.
Installers of STEP Warmfloor electric radiant heating elements across the United States and all parts of the world marvel at the ease of installing the radiant heating elements.
