When Lisa Whitridge was planning her new home, she aimed high on the sustainability scale. That meant not just meeting the rigorous Passive House standards, but achieving net-zero energy, waste and water. Her home, the Full Plane Passive House, is resultantly a marvel of engineering. One element of that marvel is a ductless cooling and heating system from Mitsubishi Electric, which keeps Whitridge’s energy usage low and her comfort high. Download the PDF below to read more.
