3 SEED House S ustainable E nergy E fficient D emonstration H ouse *Pursuing Energy Star Certification For more information on the SEED House and project partners, visit TeamMidwest.com/SEED. High Performance Design that is practical, affordable and easy to understand. Owner Partners Architect Design Partners Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration

4 Home Performance Questions to Consider 1.How many of you know what kind of gas mileage your house is getting? Do you live in a hybrid or a gas guzzler? 2.How many of you know if you have enough daily fresh air exchanges for you and your family? 3.How many of you know if you have a faulty gas combustion appliance? 4.How many of you are comfortable in your house…drafts in the winter, hot room(s) in the summer or that troublesome bonus room over the garage? 5.How many of you think your energy bill is too high?

5 Educational Goals Building Science – Whole House Approach Thermal (Building) Envelope – Air Sealing and Insulation Mechanical Systems – HVAC, Ducts, Water Heater Fresh Air Exchanges – ERVs and HRVs Combustion Safety – Furnace, Water Heater, Range Energy Use Behavior – e.g., PlayStation/Xbox = ~1700 kWhs/Yr. = $200/yr! Construction Techniques – e.g., Energy Heel Sustainable Construction Materials – e.g., Bamboo Flooring Energy Efficiency – Making efficient choses vs. less efficient – e.g., LED vs. CFL vs. Incandescent Energy Conservation – Behavioral Water Conservation – e.g., low flow shower heads, drought resistant landscaping Contractor Biz Case - $105/sq. ft. vs. $102/sq. ft. Home Owner Empowerment

6 How this Partnership Benefits the Community LISD Students, Faculty and Education Partners Midwest Members New Home and Remodel Contractors, Home Performance Contractors and Energy Auditors Real Estate, Banking and Appraisal Industries HERS – Home Energy Rating System Home Industry Retailers/Manufacturers/Suppliers The Communities we Serve Present and Future Home Owners Civic Groups Trade Associations

7 SEED House Features Energy Star 3 Certification HERS Rating Wall and Ceiling Cut-a-Ways Basement, Crawlspace and Slab Cut-a-Ways Stand Alone Cut-a-Ways/Displays Energy Heel Lighting Blower Door Audit Mechanical Displays HVAC ERV/HRV Classroom that will accommodate 20+ Students/Attendees Lectures, Additional Displays, Other Technology Displays, Partner Promotion Fully Functioning Kitchen and Conference Room w/Outdoor Deck Handicap Accessible Dynamic Educational Resource Accommodate changes in building codes and technology

8 VISION STATEMENT The SEED House is a state-of-the-art residential cut- a-way concept to be built on the LISD CSF Campus. This innovative and unique educational resource will embody proven building science and energy efficient technologies highlighting new construction, remodeling and energy retrofitting approaches designed to promote comfort, healthy indoor air quality, safety, energy conservation and energy efficiency.

9 The SEED House will accomplish this Vision in a manner that is practical, affordable and easy to understand. By using documented residential construction techniques, materials, and equipment, LISD students will help our community fashion a sustainable future for today’s energy. STRATEGIES
