Chenequa Custom Home

This spectacular home twists between the trees and appears to grow out of the hill. Our HVAC team had the moxie and technology to match the brilliance of design with an intelligent, energy-efficient solution.

A young couple with a growing family in Wisconsin had big plans for their future home – a light-filled, sustainable house; a design that bridged indoor and outdoor spaces; and quiet, invisible comfort from an HVAC system. Variable Refrigerant Flow zoning technology from Mitsubishi Electric offered that ultimate comfort, and was selected for its discrete operation and aesthetic. It could also tie in with the home’s geothermal loop and radiant floor heating. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the homeowners, engineer and contractor, and see photos of the home and equipment.
