What is Solar-Geo?
Plenty of homes have photovoltaic panels, and some have geothermal. But 633 Amherst is a unique combination of both clean energies. Since the owners had already completed similar projects, they remodeled the fifty-year old home to combine solar photovoltaic electricity generation with geothermal ground-source heat pump technologies. The WaterFurnace geothermal system uses the renewable energy source in the earth to heat and cool the home, instead of gas and electricity. The system provides cleaner indoor air quality than combustion of fossil fuels by using the Earth and Sun as the energy source.
Attention to detail, energy conservation and sustainable choices:
633 Amherst was designed to include many details sensitive to comfort and sustainability. For example, the flooring is made from ecological forest thinning, using no harmful additives and adding to a natural and healthy room climate, and is particularly recommended for people with dust allergies. The home takes advantage of natural daylighting and ventilation, with French doors and operable clerestory windows. Motion sensors, timers and efficient lighting reduce and automate energy use. As a result of the sustainable design of the home, the total energy bill for 633 Amherst is less than comparable homes.
