Green Building Episode 6: How HRV and Mini Split Systems Save Energy

Learn more about fuel oil furnace repair here. This short film is Episode 6 of Peckham Architecture’s 11-part documentary series on how to construct a green building for energy efficiency and a lower carbon footprint. This episode shows the installation of HRV (heat recovery ventilation) and mini split systems and explains how they contribute to energy conservation in a passive house.

Peckham Architecture’s LEED Platinum home headquarters is Missouri’s first Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) Certified building. Solar panels and super insulation make our eco house net-positive, which means that it produces more electricity than it consumes. LED lights, a tankless water heater and Energy Star appliances further improve our energy efficiency.

This fully accessible green building features a 1,200-square-foot office and 2,500 square feet of living space for Nick and Diane Peckham, plus a garage and unheated 3-season porch.
