  The issue is that your water is coming in very cold and the warm air of your home hits that cold and condenses on the outside of the pipe. Insulating the water lines from the conditioned space will help reduce that condensation. As far as the hot water lines go (future lines) the insulation will help them retain their heat.

Help reduce heating and cooling costs for highly insulated homes Remove “stuffiness” and help freshen up the home Air exchangers (also known as heat recovery ventilators or air-to-air heat exchangers) can be used in conjunction with your other residential or commercial HVAC equipment, such as forced-air heating or central air conditioning.   A super-insulated experimental house, built in /75, equipped with ground heat exchangers, controlled ventilation, solar and heat pump technology and “inhabited” by a .

  The science behind developing heat and cooling was explored. The idea of heat as energy was explored and science began to explore how energy could be exchanged. “A device that removes (extracts, recovers, salvages) heat from one airstream and delivers it to another airstream is called an air-to-air heat exchanger.

An air-to-air heat exchanger is slightly larger than a window air conditioner. The unit is connected through ducts to all rooms in the house. Super-Insulated Homes: A Cooperative Venture Back inSaskatoon's Energy Showcase — sponsored by the governments of Canada and Saskatchewan, the local branch of the Housing and Urban.

Unless the heat source in your home is a wood stove, power outages will cause problems. Tightly built super insulated houses hold the heat longer in power outages, and therefore are more robust.

They're also better at keeping cool during power Super insulated houses ; and Air-to-air heat exchangers book in heat waves. If ventilation becomes a problem in a power outage, open the windows. Hi. I live in south central Saskatchewan and my house was built in a It is well insulated but I get sweat on the windows all the time.

I got a mid efficient furnace that's 7 years old. Looking at an air to air exchanger its made by Venmar its a Constructro Now my house is an sq/ft bungelo. Even a super-duper-insulated house (R walls, R ceilings) would cost about $ a year to year.

By comparison, a mid-efficiency (85 percent AFUE) oil-fired furnace would heat the same example houses for about $ and $ dollars respectively using an oil price of $ per gallon.

The air to air heat exchanger is the equipment that makes this concept work, it is for ventilation and absolutely necessary. Reply. using Passive House principles.

Super-insulated, with a Steffes ETS unit to keep the slab warm (not the house) and a ductless mini-split to heat and cool the house, heating costs will be similar to geothermal.

Both types include a heat exchanger, one or more fans to push air through the machine, and controls. There are some small wall- or window-mounted models, but the majority are central, whole-house ventilation systems with their own duct system or shared ductwork.

Larry's answer is the solution, of course -- if you are going to build a super insulated house, provide controlled air exchange with a heat exchanger (I prefer to use sensible heat only; a little less efficient, but real advantages to air quality as well as simpler). I have to get my t ext book.

I also like the idea of superinsulation as an aide in resale. If I have to sell my house in 20 years, these levels of superinsulation might not give me a huge return on investment, but it may very well make it possible to sell, where a conventional house with a $2, a month heat bill, might not sell at all.

Of course, part of the answer is that we should perhaps give up the idea of running. tors lacked air-to-air heat exchangers and so on, but they understood well the benefits of building relatively com-pact, rectangular, two-story houses. They avoided building homes with inefficient shapes, because they knew such houses would be hard to heat.

The lot orientation was chosen so that windows on the house face south. Polarized light by William A Shurcliff (Book) 22 editions published Air-to-air heat exchangers for houses: Super insulated houses ; and, Air-to-air heat exchangers by William A Shurcliff.

Tight, super-insulated houses need some kind of mechanical ventilation to keep indoor air healthy. Installing exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms is the simplest option. More often, energy-efficient builders install either a heat-recovery ventilator (HRV).

Anybody that puts up new frame house without super insulating is foolish in my opinion. Course contractors dont like it as its lot more work to do right. Requires painstaking attention to detail to eliminate thermal leaks, then a proper air to air heat exchanger system to get fresh air in.

As to 2x4 interior wall, no thanks. Larsen Truss/ Super-Insulated Homes Questions and Answers. Robert Riversong has created his own form of the Larsen Truss building system, and specializes in super-insulated houses.

He teaches these techniques, and many other subjects, at the The Yestermorrow School in Vermont. From geodesic domes in the s and a community land trust homestead program in rural Maine inRobert has.

However finding suitable fans, ductwork and controls led to inconsistent performance. It was while building super insulated homes in Saskatoon in the late ’s that Rick and others recognized the need for a smaller, more effective ventilation system with excellent heat recovery.

William A. Shurcliff is the author of Polarized Light ( avg rating, 3 ratings, 0 reviews, published ), Super Insulated Houses and Double-Envelope /5(2). Insulation: To be considered superinsulated, a house must have wall and window R-values roughly twice as high as those dictated by area building codes.

In general, this level will also be the most.HEAT EXCHANGERS. Whole House Fan. In the attempt to make the house as energy efficient as possible, there are quite a few heat exchangers set up around the house to take help keep all the warmth and coolth in it’s proper places.

Some are active, some are passive, and they run the gamut of passing heat from air to air, air to ground, water to.A heat recovery unit or mechanical ventilation and heat recovery (MVHR) unit comprises of a control unit which houses the fans and the heat recovery system (the black bit in the image above).

This control unit is often located in the loft, but more and more they are being located within the insulated fabric of the home, often in a kitchen or.
