Hacienda Ja Ja

Over the past year, our highest utility bill for combined gas and electric in any month was for $85. This year the bills have been even lower. Every spring and fall we even have a negative electric bill for a few months.
A couple relocating to Alamo Heights, Texas, wanted to build a sustainable and energy-efficient home with simple, clean lines and ample windows. The couple recognized Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) zoning systems from Mitsubishi Electric as pioneering technology, and as the HVAC solution for their dream home. VRF contributed significantly to the home’s LEED® Platinum certification, and has continued to provide ample comfort and small energy bills. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the owners and mechanical consultant/contractor, and see photos of the home and equipment.
