The scope of this project was easy. My furnace and air conditioner were in dire need of replacement. The firebox was already rusted through. I think that if I had kept the system, this would have been the year for a carbon monoxide lesson.

Bottom line was to replace the existing natural gas furnace and electric air conditioner.<P>

1100 sq Ft 2-story Saltbox home, forced hot air heat. ECR Technologies 3 ton Direct Exchange (DX) ground source heat pump. Freon circulates through (3)100 ft vertical copper ground loops in 100 ft boreholes in wet clay and glacial boulders. Earth warms Freon to 47F, is compressed to boost energy of low density gas. Air handler coil extracts hot gas heat to air flow. Cooled returning gas is condensed and recirculated back to earth loops to complete the cycle. Summer cooling reverses gas flow pumping house-heated gas to compressor, then to earth loop where excess heat is sunk into the earth. Equipment excess heat is used in summer to help heat domestic hot water.
The system was down for routine maintenance since July. It is back online now. Work is in progress to update the public display web data diagram.

Bob & Kathy's House
Our Victorian style all electric home was built in 1986 using available insulating materials and HVAC technologies that existed at the time of construction. Specifically, the home was insulated using 2x6 walls with fiberglass batt insulation with 1 inch double foil faced PIR (polyisocyanurate) foil taped panels placed on the interior walls, covered with sheet rock (R28). The attic space was insulated with blown in fiberglass (R40) with a polyethylene vapor barrier. We also used triple glazed high R windows, inset and insulated the band joists for both the first and second floor, and confined the forced air duct work, plumbing, and electrical to interior walls and used low profile surface outlet boxes at the base board to keep the perimeter walls intact.
The original A-A heat pump continues to serve us well for both heating and A/C. A number of years ago we added a pellet stove that we use when the outside temperatures drop. The pellet stove can easily heat the entire house even when the outside temperatures are 0 F (we turn the heat pump off).
I'm currently investigating the installation of a geothermal W-A heat pump for the future.

Geothermal on a Budget
Having become very frustrated with magazine articles where McMansion's were used to demonstrate the economies (''Our New Home is 100% Geothermal and the geothermal system only cost $ 350,000'') and vendor quotes (''your geothermal system will cost $ 47,000...$ 93,000), I decided to build a geothermal home ''on a budget''. Where the local HVAC company wanted $ 27,000 for the 5 Ton heat pump, installed, I took factory training, purchased the same pump from the factory for $4,700 and installed it myself.

Likewise, where radiant heating was quoted at between $30,000 and $ 45,000, we got a very detailed design and the complete installation kit from the great folks at www.nrt.com and installed it with a bit of help from the plumber. The result is a 6 zone radiant system operated by a Climate Master 5 ton (turns out to be much more than we needed, typical HVAC over-sizing...see graphs) water to water Geothermal Heat pump operating off our domestic water well. First year ran just over $ 1,200 for both heat and hot water. We expect to do better next year, since we're fixing all the sloppy air infiltration our awful builder didn't do properly.

An Energy Efficient Measure of Solar Hot Water, Heat Pump and Drain source heat recovery
Our house has been an ongoing experiment in renovating a 1968 bungalow into an energy efficient home for a sustainable future. We monitor all electricity usage, heat loss and renewable energy gains and have ~ 7 years of data now accumulated. The house has passive solar design, insulation to R-20 or greater in the walls, R-65 or greater in the attic, outside and inside foundation insulation. An air source heat pump is used for heating with extra heat on really cold days from a high efficiency Opel wood insert fireplace. Solar thermal is used for hot water heating and a drain water heat recovery system is in place to recapture drain water heating. Our family of 6 attempts to use hot water on sunny days and match our usage to production to optimize efficiency. We also monitor all electricity usage through a TED 5000. The whole house is an ongoing R&D experiment in validating true cost efficiencies and value from renewable energy and from changing patterns of usage. So far, we have validated true costs and returns from each design aspect and have also validated usage patterns for typical families, along with optimal behaviours for those who want to be as efficient as possible.

Freedom Won Solar Heater
This solar water heater uses the Freedom Won patented technology and provides solar water heating for this family since 2011. It is fully automatic, off-grid and includes an automatic heat dissipater. The features include:
- Three twenty-tube evacuated collectors.
- An integrated PV panel mounted on the thermal collector that energizes the variable speed circulating pump
- An automatic heat dissipater that is controlled by a thermostatic valve configured to limit the solar fluid to 200F.
- An internal-coil 80 gallon stainless tank preheats potable water with solar energy which then flows into a conventional gas water heater for additional heating. This is only necessary in the winter when half of the tubes are shaded by the neighbor's house.
- The array is wall-mounted on a south-facing brick chimney that receives good exposure most of the year although it is shaded by the neighbouring home in the winter.
- There is no electronic controller.
- It uses 50% propylene glycol, 50% water for the working fluid.

It works great - when the sun shines it heats water. There is nothing for the homeowner to adjust, no annual maintenance and no reliance on grid electricity. It will not overheat or freeze-up; it just works. Over five years of solar energy with no maintenance! Glycol is just like new thanks to the automatic heat dissipater.

We have a modern, sustainably-built home in Pullman, WA, which has recently received an NW EnergyStar certification. It was designed and built by Dyonne Davidson (IRIS Design Works) and R. Lane Brown. The exterior walls of the first level are FasWall blocks (R-26), coated on the exterior with a concrete-based stucco, and on the inside with a lime-based plaster (EcoStucco). The upper level uses double-stud or lattice-style construction to minimize thermal bridging, and is filled with open-cell foam (Demilec Sealection500) to R-36 and R-28, respectively. The unvented roof is filled with closed-cell foam (Demilec HeatLockSoy200) to R-40+ between the I-beam roof support. The majority of the windows are Atrium triple-pain vinyl windows (U value 0.22). The roofing material is a mechanically-rolled standing seam roof. The solar thermal system was designed and installed in collaboration with Todd Hoitsma from LiquidSolar of Bozeman, MT. We have eight 4x10 solar thermal panels at 23 degrees on a S-facing shed roof. The heat is transferred to a 350 gallon storage tank. The heat from this tank is used to heat domestic water in a Triangle Tube indirect water heater and used for space heating by charging a high-mass sandbed, which lies in an insulated foundation under the polished concrete slab flooring. Fourty-five percent of the glazing is on the S side (would have been more, except for a fantastic view to the East) with overhangs to provide shade during the summer months. During the winter months, this provides passive heating of the dark concrete floor slab. For backup space heating and domestic hot water, we have a Viessmann boiler (95% efficient).

Bethencourt Residence
We have a 4-ton ground source heat pump (GSHP) Envision Series from WaterFurnace that was installed in the fall of 2008 to heat & cool our home. The system has a closed loop with a pressurized GeoLink Flow Center FC2-FPT with two Grundfos pumps (TYP UP 26-99) and 3 vertical bores at 225 feet each with 1.25'' HDPE pipe. The geothermal loop is running with methanol diluted at 20%. The GSHP is controlled by a TZ-4 TotalZone Zone Control panel from Honeywell.

We also have a Marathon (MR50245) 50 Gallon 4500 Watts Electric Water heater.

Our house was built in 2002. The house is 2500 square feet with 2'' by 6'' framing on exterior walls and R19 insulation. The attic has R30 insulation. The house has Andersen Windows with high performance glass.

The geothermal heat pump replaced an inefficient Hallmark oil fired furnace. The Marathon water heater replaced a Bock oil water heater. We have cut our dependency on fossil fuels as we no longer need oil to heat our home or our domestic hot water.

We have been researching the WEL for awhile. We are hoping to get a better understanding of how our system is performing and monitor in greater detail our temperature sensor data and monthly heating and cooling costs.

I hope to monitor the behavior of the the geothermal unit,
and validate that it does not use the backup electric element too much.

As I am going to do some monitoring, I also intend to monitor many points in the house to see how well the whole setup is balanced.

Finally, I am also monitoring the electric current at many points, and I want to correlate all this.

4.4kW of PV supplies all our electricity (plus ~10%), and hot water comes from an AC Wand(TM) water heater by butlersunsolutions.com (BSSI). We have a two-tank system with two 40-gallon tanks connected so they convect naturally to heat the upper (pilotless, gas-fired) tank. The bottom tank has the BSSI AC Wand(TM) heat exchanger that heats the tank from a 120VAC outlet (~625W). This keeps the water heater above the setpoint of the gas burner, so it does not fire up.

I installed the WEL to monitor real time energy consumption and the performance of my 2 ton GeoConfort two stage geothermal unit, desuperheater and a heat pump HRV.
GeoConfort geothermal two stage heat pump (2 tons): The unit is undersized due to utility room size constaints but I compensated with an oversized vertical loop 540 feet deep using 1 1/4'' polyethylene tubing with 25% methanol. I will try to lower the antifreeze concentration in the future. I keep a constant ambient temperature day/night using 1 cycle per hour.
DHWH: The two element hot water heater (11 years old) will be replace with a three element unit shortly. The lower element is on a timer and operates only once a day in the early morning hours to kill any bacteria and is deactivated from around December to March when the desuperheater heat is sufficient.
Tonn-Air heat pump HRV (3/4 ton): When installed in the spring, it will run automatically on demand and will be controlled by CO2 levels and/or air quality monitors and humidity sensors in bathrooms. The compressor will only operate in cooling mode and in heating mode only on the coldest winter days.

Our Cool House
The Birth Place of the Web Energy Logger (Posting Since 2005)

Rather than building a traditional ''Energy-Hog'' home, or even a non-traditional Energy-Efficient home, our new home is a unique fusion of energy efficient techniques, and environmental sanity.

Our goal was to create a home that uses the sun, earth and water to create a pleasant living environment where we can enjoy the wildlife, and which also reduces our demands on non-sustainable resources.
