January 9, 2019 from 12pm to 1:15pm
The construction industry as a whole is evolving. Consumers are not only demanding the most efficient spaces to live in, but developed in a way that integrates the shared economy - the sharing an investment - in this case a house, to reduce the total cost of ownership and in some cases, not having to invest anything into a home - and simply share part of someone else's healthy home.On top of that, we can now produce entirely foam free structures that keep water out, heat in and can be put up in…See More

"Hello Brett, Without looking at the previous discussion, the question can be answered in many ways.  Do ductless systems do better on the HERS?  Better than what on the HERS? A ductless system will have a better HERS Index than a ducted…"

"Hi Sean, my comment re: actionable cooling load was about the application of ductless, not related to Brett's question on impact on HERS. Sorry if I conflated the two."

Sean Lintow Sr replied to Brett Little's discussion Do ductless systems do better on the HERS?

David Butler replied to Brett Little's discussion Do ductless systems do better on the HERS?
"By 'actionable', I mean the load is such that the homeowner actually needs to use A/C, as opposed to what the software might predict. Most of the US has actionable cooling loads, except higher elevations. I explain my logic for not using…"

Brett Little replied to Brett Little's discussion Do ductless systems do better on the HERS?

Multiple Listing Services across the country are “greening” their listing input forms as they seek to provide fields that will be driving the industry over the next 5-10 years. In order for new “green” fields in the MLS system to provide the most advantageous information, users must understand the proper language to describe “green” features, and the added value “green” features offer agents and homeowners. Make sure you understand the opportunities a high-performance home offers and the…See More
