Green Technologies at Work

This is a 360 degree view of one of the mechanical rooms at 60 Bragg Hill.  This room contains the solar panel inverters, the geothermal water-to-water heat pumps, most of the radiant floor manifolds, our well water system, domestic hot water and wireless Lutron lighting system.  This is the hub of most of the green technologies that powers the home.  The room was designed and built by Frank Ent, Timothy Off, Mark Thompson, Tad Radzinski, Pusey Electric, and dozens of other highly trained professionals.  Does it work?  You bet.

No, it’s not a submarine.  Most of the pipes represent a majority of the 11 radiant heat zones in the house, most of which are remotely monitored here in this room.  The lighting, by the way is all LED.
