Yes, we have those Energy-Star monitors, but not the computer itself. I've never seen one of those. > How much insulation (rated R-value)? > How is the envelope improved? > What are the window specs (double-pane, low-E, u-value, etc.)? > Is your architect familiar with passive solar design? Here are the Energy Crafted Home specs. I'd be interested in seeing how they measure up to other energy saving schemes: Insulation values: Attic - R-38 Frame Walls: R-24 Foundation Wall: R-18 Sub-Slab Floor: R-5 Slab Perimeter: R-10 Windows: R-3.1, with low-e coatings Doors: R-4.4 Air Tightness: .3 sq. in. per 1-- sq. ft. of shell area Ventilation: Heat Recovery Ventilator Yes, our architects are familiar with passive solar design and are using it where possible and economical (currently have plans to use passive solar in the common house, but the budget axes are swinging! :-( ). - Nancy Nancy Wight wight [at] world.std.com New View Neighborhood Development Acton, MA
