Geothermal Performance

This research site monitors the electrical consumption as well as the interior space conditions of a low energy, factory built modular home near Panama City, Florida. It is a two story three bedroom/two bath home with 1371 sqft of living space and a HERS rating of 26. Energy consumption is offset by a 3.6 kw photovoltaic system. It has a sealed attic insulated with open cell spray foam. Heating and cooling is provided by a 1.5 ton, closed loop, geothermal heat pump. An outside air duct connects to the air handler return plenum for whole house ventilation during HVAC runtimes. It is also the first home in Florida to achieve a LEED for Homes platinum rating. Home was occupied by one person until late 2008 when it was converted into a builder sales office.
