WHOLE SUN DESIGNS http://www.wholesundesigns.com/ recently installed the first phase of solar panels on our current home! Ryan Zaricki and crew did a fabulous job -- knowledgeable, experienced, cost-effective, and super customer service. Click on the link above to find out more about Whole Sun Designs.
Broadly defining the solar aspect of our const-ruction business, here are some products and systems we have developed and/or pioneered.
Heat and Cool Sink Solar Designs: New passive solar designs utilizing the foundation as a passive geothermal loop, acting as both heat sink and cool sink. Uses a solarium that maximizes efficiency when connected to a heat recovery ventilator (HRV). Our designs reduce energy costs by about 75%. The current model has 75% reduction in cooling costs over conventional designs.
Insulation Envelope: Innovative insulation envelope designed and field-tested through several applications and continues in house testing.
Solar Maximization: Simplified passive solar maximization in the home, including more efficient roof overhangs.
Natural Gas Home Fuel Stations: Home fuel stations for compressed natural gas (CNG) cars, which get the equivalent of 225 MPG compared to the cost of unleaded gasoline. These motors have a longer life and by-products are mostly C02 and H20.
Heat & Fresh Air Supplying Solariums: Solariums generate heat and supply volumes of fresh air for the homes, accomplishing a hundred-fold what an HRV does, while sacrificing no efficiency.
Radiant Floor Systems and Heat Exchangers: Solar evacuated water designs with active solar water in radiant floor systems and heat exchangers to furnace. The system services two garages, solarium, hot tub, and domestic water. New solar hot tub design, which runs off of excess heat from the evacuated tube system.
For sustainability as well as business efficiency and effectiveness, have you considered improving the solar investment in your business?
