energy-saving quincy home costs $215 a year to heat, cool  -  heat pump unit prices
As he drove to see architect Matt Omalia on one of his recent projects-the beachside villas in Quincy, Massachusetts-I felt the revelation might be around.
The summer traffic was heavy and the temperature reached a record high, and it seems to me that we humans are driving and consuming the planet to a very bad future.
Happily, there is hope that the building I am going to see is not necessarily the case.
The house uses as little energy as possible to implement the performance principles first proposed by Europe in early 1990.
As a construction student in Germany, Omalia learned about the concept, which the Germans called Passivhaus.
In the 1990 s, he and his company, walking in the logic of the city of Belgium, Maine, began designing their own passive houses in 2008.
As Omalia said, they have been "perfecting the system" since then, trying to make the building look good, at least 90% higher than the building energy saving required by the standard code.
Quincy's house is home to mikaira and Eureka Nelson and their two sons, aged 10 and 13.
They purchased the property in 2012 because it was attracted by the view of the Boston Harbor Islands and had the opportunity to replace the existing little cape with the construction of biotechnology entrepreneur Ulrik, described as "the best thing they can do to reduce environmental impact. ” The couple —
Urrick is Danish, mikera, German.
He was a postdoctoral student at MIT in 2001.
They have been living from this lot through the Houghs Neck of Quincy Bay, living in a house of all jalousie windows, oil heat, in the event of rain or shine, they
Michaela said: "We have been thinking, how can you live in such a hot and cold climate without any insulation?
As Europeans, they are already familiar with the concept of passive housing.
Study it in the United StatesS.
Practitioners, they met Omalia and soon visited 36-
The Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage project was designed and built in Maine.
The community of this multi-family residence gave them a photo of each stage of the passive building.
Soon they worked with Omalia and project architect Riley Pratt in their new Kunming.
The result is an amazing combination of familiar forms with traditional mountain shapes with contemporarystyle massing.
Like many Danish coastal houses, the upper floor is dressed in white cedar and dyed black, while the first floor retains natural decoration.
Contrary to expectations in high school
The house does not look like a bunker.
German three-in-one array
The pane window provides the entire view.
Flat roofs are vegetation for waterproofing and insulation, while gable roofs are upright
This is a tribute to the New England farmhouse.
Instead of putting 24 photovoltaic panels on the House, ormaria placed them on the roof of the annex building that was used as the studio and was almost invisible.
The panels provide great power to the compound and two electric vehicles, so that Neilsens does not pay electricity bills from April to December.
The studio and house is an outdoor room with plenty of sun to resist the sea breeze.
Michaela said: "It has its own micro-climate and is perfect for dining outdoors on cold days.
"However, on the day I visited it felt like an oven on a grill, so we hid inside.
The restaurant is cool and welcoming with polished concrete floor and wide view

The living room beckons to us and lets see the colorful section of Roche bobobois.
Because the air conditioner is not on, the cool is more significant.
Omalia turns to the outer wall, though there are 100-
The temperature outside is very high and it feels cool.
He said, "We have a drywall, a 2-by-

Structural insulation panels for packaging cellulose, nearly 8 inch foam insulation, and rain-proof panel assemblies for building packaging, vertical strapping, and horizontal cedar boards.
It combines the insulation value of R-50.
The roof has 24 inch cellulose, click R-80.
"This system is designed to keep heat in the summer and winter, and is constantly working hard by GO Logic.
The house is characterized by a careful air seal with little heat bridging (
Solid elements of the structure span between the outside and the inside, allowing cold or heat transfer), and a heat-

In the winter, the sun heat from low
The sun lying on the ground enters from the window of the east and south, while the upper part of the cantilever is the firstFloor in summer
The only other warmth comes from body heat, the electric towel heater in the bathroom and the radiant floor, the waste heat of the appliance and the heat pump with a registration device on each floor.
Michaela said: "We only need it on the coldest night, and we hardly open it upstairs.
We basically don't need it to cool down.
Annual heating and cooling costs are estimated at $215.
The house was built by Gene Solchenberger of Quincy.
It's about $2,600 for 700,000 square feet, $270 per foot, very reasonable.
"We spent the money on things that made it cheaper to get the house to operate," Michaela said . ".
On that sultry day, my final impression was that I put my head into the small attic and looked at the ventilation machinery.
It's warmer or two degrees than the living space, not hot. Cool (
Literal and figurative)
Nielsen's new home is comfortable, affordable, low operating costs and good for the environment, which makes me more optimistic about our opportunities as a species.
