NextGen Homes

Mitsubishi [Electric]’s hyper-heat feature was really important to us, giving us the ability to heat with a heat pump in negative temperatures. That meant we could increase the efficiency of the whole package, and eliminate auxiliary sources.

Prompted to create a more energy-efficient residential market in Chattanooga, Tennessee, local sustainability nonprofit green|spaces hosted a competition challenging participants to design a zero-energy, market-rate home. The winning design was adapted and built, and is now a 1,700-square-foot home – one of four NextGen homes planned. Tasked with achieving maximum energy efficiency while satisfying the demands of Chattanooga’s mixed-humid climate, participants had to select the home’s systems carefully. Ultimately, the winning entry featured Hyper-Heating INVERTER® (H2i®) technology from Mitsubishi Electric Cooling & Heating (Mitsubishi Electric) Zoned Comfort Solutions™.
