*Although three 9000BTU mini splits will be used in this house, HVAC modeling states we only needed ONE. Since the house has a separate master suite and third bedroom, the added two mini splits are for additional human comfort only. We selected Fujitsu mini splits because they just increased their SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) to 33 (a typical window air conditioner has a SEER around 11). The higher the SEER, the lower the energy needed to cool the building. In other words, very cool!
*Lunos eGo and e2 were our choice for heat recovery ventilators throughout the house. German engineered for decades, these HRVs do not require duct work and are easy to install. They are designed to breathe in fresh air for 70 seconds, then reverse, expelling stale air for 70 seconds. Yes, these simple devices are literally the lungs of the house; a necessity when you build a tight house.
