Sixth Street Passive House

An image of the Sixth St. Passive House's interior.
The house is doing well. It’s right in line with my expectations. I’m very pleased with it.

Joey Conover and husband Jeff Erkelens built and now live in the Sixth St. Passive House in Charlottesville, Virginia. An M-Series multi-zone system from Mitsubishi Electric made the Passive House certification possible, and now helps the couple consume just one-fifth of the energy that their neighbors consume.  Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the homeowners/builders and energy consultant, and see a photo of the home.
