To achieve Passivhaus certification, the homes have to achieve a minimum air tightness level of 0.60 ACH 50, which is five times “tighter” than the 3.0 ACH 50 required of new Maryland code-built houses.

In this image, Robert Champ of Edge Energy operates a blower door, which pressurizes and depressurizes the house to test air-tightness and spot leaks. The initial blower door test, conducted after the modules were installed on site, was 0.36 ACH 50. This initial blower door test provides a crucial window to spot any glaring air leaks before they are covered in other building materials and become more difficult to access. The homes’ final blower door test, completed after construction was wrapped up, was 0.35 – below the Passivhaus requirement of 0.6.

Basic HVAC qualifications

The qualifications obtained by contractors can and will vary, depending on their specific education pathways and experiences. Basic vocational training and on-site experience are essential for a qualified HVAC professional. If you want to be sure these qualifications are legitimate, you can do a basic background check of your contractor’s education and find out whether they are from reputable institutions or businesses. While your check will likely end with confirmation of their qualifications, it is important to remain aware that scams occasionally crop up in the contracting world and it’s better to be safe than sorry.

In the spring of 2016, Amy met with part-owner Anthony Colella of EDGE Energy to discuss the goals for her home. The couple had agreed that they wanted the largest system that would fit on their roof and it had to look great on their well-maintained home in the historical Palisades neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Since their home had a slate roof, they needed a contractor who was well-versed in this type of construction and installation. Fortunately, EDGE has experience will all kinds of homes, roofs and energy requirements. In order to fully accommodate the couple, truly black-on-black solar panels and a sophisticated racking system were required.

SunPower solar panels quickly became the obvious choice for Lou and Amy. The EDGE team suggested the X-20 250-watt Signature Black panels on SunPower Invisimount racking. This would not only give the family maximum power from their 13 kW system, with premium aesthetics, but about half of the installation costs would return to them in the first year.

The comprehensive 25 year SunPower warranty also gave Amy and Lou true peace of mind. They now won’t have to worry about babysitting their investment over time.

In the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia area, your home is undoubtedly your largest financial investment. But are you sure your home is serving your best interests?

In order to live a happy, healthy life, your home should guarantee some essential benefits. It should be clean, well-ventilated, properly humidified, and free of toxins, dangerous gases, and pests. This ensures you’re living in a comfortable, healthy home while having minimal impact on the outside environment. Good construction, energy efficient upgrades, and ongoing maintenance can achieve healthy home conditions—even in older houses.

More and more homeowners throughout the US and the rest of the world are choosing to “go solar” than ever before. Solar is one of the cleanest renewable energy sources available. Many people overlook the fact that our sun is essentially a naturally occurring nuclear reactor, releasing tiny energy packets referred to as “photons” that travel 93 million miles from the sun to the earth in a shocking eight-and-a-half minutes.

Enough of these photons hit the planet each hour to theoretically power the globe for a solid year, which explains why so many people are choosing to go solar. EDGE Energy is a proud dealer of SunPower solar projects, and we’ll help you move further in the direction of energy independence than ever before.
