Little Green House

An exterior image of the Little Green House in Nashville, Tennessee.
The unit is discreet and unobtrusive, which we love. When people do notice it, or notice that it’s ‘cool’ to control settings via remote, it ends up being a great conversation starter.

The Little Green House is one of the first passive solar houses in the Nashville, Tennessee area. That means a clever home design to maximize sunlight and a super energy-efficient HVAC system to keep energy consumption low. The home’s Mitsubishi Electric dual-zone heat pump system offers a high SEER rating, individual control of each room and discreet operation. The recognition for all this excellence – LEED® Platinum certification. Download the PDF below to read more. You’ll hear from the homeowner, builder and contractor, and see photos of the equipment and home.
