Electric Radiant Floor Heating Warms the Proud Green Home of Louisville

Aug. 24, 2016

There are many paths to sustainability, and the Proud Green Home of Louisville is traveling many of them.

In addition to the insulated concrete forms that form the walls and add energy-saving insulation, to the sheathing systems that cuts down on air leakage, radiant heating will provide a new level of comfort in some rooms of the house.

In this video, Builder Sy Safi of UberGreen Spaces & Homes, reviews STEP Warmfloor, the low-voltage radiant heating system that will provide energy efficient, comfortable heating for key rooms of the house. Some of the floors that the system will heat are made from reclaimed barn wood, another sustainable choice in the home's design.

For Su Verdi, Safi will be seeking certification under several standards, including the U.S. Green Building Council LEED for Homes, the National Association of Home Builders Green Building Standard, the Department of Energy Zero Energy Ready program and Passive House.
