Heating, cooling solutions key in high-performance building

| by Steve Arel

Lennox has been among the leaders in the effort to help builders move construction of high-performance single- and multifamily homes from niche to mainstream.

Through a series of energy efficient heating and cooling solutions, the company has long worked with developers to devise strategy on how developers can best integrate their solutions into structures to raise indoor air quality to peak levels.

Scott Curtis, manager of new residential construction for Lennox, attended last month’s Energy & Environmental Building Alliance (EEBA) High Performance Home Summit in Atlanta to meet with builders and others on the advances in HVAC technologies. He also spoke about how the high-performance building industry has made significant strides in recent years.
