Willow Creek Green Craftsman Innovations: Integration of Systems - Homes Across America Search Return

Willow Creek Green Craftsman




Goals of Innovation: To create an efficiently functioning house.

Description: The integration of all the systems in this home was the most important feature. A combination of design, construction and the smart system makes this work. The smart system allows for constant monitoring of the HVAC system and the electrical systems while at the same time allowing for security measures to be available from off-site. These smart systems have the capabilities of even allowing for monitoring of the window temperatures; when the windows reach a certain temperature the shade or blind system will be activated to close. The builder also pre-plumbed for solar heating in the event that the future owners choose to go with this system.

Obstacles: None encountered.

Cost Information: The upfront cost of the smart system will show returns with efficiency and integration.
