PROJECT INSIGHTS

Each year, The New American Home (TNAH), sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders, debuts at the annual International Builders’ Show and showcases the latest innovations and efficiency advancements in homebuilding. Systems and materials are specified with the intent of achieving green building certifications. TNAH 2020 is a 6,428-square-foot high-performance luxury home overlooking the Las Vegas strip from the nearby Ascaya community in Henderson, Nevada.

A hybrid ducted and ductless Zoned Comfort Solutions® system from Mitsubishi Electric efficiently conditions 10 comfort zones within the home. Zoning allows units to be turned off or set to energy saving levels in rooms infrequently used. This operation ensures the utmost in homeowner comfort and energy savings.

In addition to energy efficiency, Mitsubishi Electric units offer whisper-quiet sound levels, simplified maintenance and tasteful design appeal. The ductless EZ FIT® Recessed Ceiling Cassette, for example, is designed to fit between standard 16″ ceiling joists and sits flush to the ceilings. Complementing the ductless units, PEAD Horizontal-Ducted Indoor Units use short-run ductwork to discreetly provide comfort throughout the home.
