Near Passive House, Near Zero Net Energy
Paul Panish of the DEAP Group used the Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) to help design this home.
Located in a quiet area of Stow, MA, this highly efficient, very comfortable home will provide the owner with a very comfortable, very low cost home for many years to come.
This home was designed to be practical, providing a great deal of living space in a small footprint, due to the 2.5 story design, which has a conditioned, fully insulated basement.
Details on this home available here. This home was included in a presentation at the 2011 ASHRAE Annual Conference by Peter Englemann and Kurt Roth of Fraunhofer Institute USA, and was also included in a PHD dissertation by Thomas Walter, University of MA, Lowell. .
