The home was finished with an extremely efficient passive and active mechanical system. Passive ventilation strategies even eliminated the need for mechanical cooling. Hydronic floor heating was installed to create consistent interior comfort levels through a simple and efficient system. A rooftop electric photovoltaic power system reduced the need for fossil fuel energy, while solar hot water also helped to reduce heating needs. In the end the project exceeded the 2005 Title 24 energy standards by 38%.
