The Kuntz Residence

"Mitsubishi Electric gives you the equipment size you need and the technology to vary the output up and down to match your load conditions. And it’s done in a way that’s compact, attractive and efficient."

What would it be like to never pay a power bill again? Mark Kuntz, chief executive officer, Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US, is well on his way to finding out.

Looking to build a home that would consume zero energy, incur no debt and utilize long-lasting materials, Kuntz set his sights on designing a DOE Zero Energy Ready Home utilizing Mitsubishi Electric's Zoned Comfort Solutions®, solar panels and high-performance insulation. The result has been outstanding with a confirmed HERS score of -13. Download the PDF to read moreYou'll hear from Mark, the builder, the METUS Performance Construction team and energy consultant.
