Seward Residence

This 2500 square foot home has a 3-1/2-ton geothermal system.   The heat exchange field consists of 5 boreholes of 200-foot depth each.  An in-floor hydronic radiant heating system is used throughout.  Two fan-coil units provide cooling in the summer.

The domestic hot water is heated with a two-panel active solar system.  This is further backed up with the de-superheater of the heat pump, the heat pump itself, and the house boiler (if ever used) resulting in unlimited amounts of hot water.

The residence is a remodeled 1894 one-room schoolhouse that also incorporates passive solar design.
