Schmeltzer Residence

We really invested our money into this house: the walls, insulation, windows and HVAC system. At every point we could make a choice, we always went with the most energy-efficient option. That’s why we chose Mitsubishi Electric.

Sally and Jason Schmeltzer moved to Asheville, North Carolina in 2005 and began their careers as chemistry faculty at UNC Asheville. As a couple and in their professional work, they strive to make choices that positively affect their family, students, community and overall global footprint. The same philosophy rang true when they set their sights on building a new, 1,750-square-foot, net-zero home. Making the choice to install the most efficient mechanical systems possible, the couple turned to Zoned Comfort Solutions® from Mitsubishi Electric for heating and cooling. The result: a comfortable home with impressive energy efficiency – they received a HERS score of -10! Download the PDF below to read more
