THE PROPERTY


The heating and cooling system for the building was originally intended to be geothermal. After hitting stone ledge during excavation, it was determined that the drilling and digging necessary to continue that plan would be cost prohibitive. The system chosen is a Carrier Infinity all-climate heat pump system, which offers heating and cooling from the same principles of air-conditioning, exacting energy (heat) from the temperature differences between the interior and exterior of the space.

Sun Creek Center has a heat recovery ventilation system to maintain a steady stream of fresh-air exchange while managing the benefits of the insulation envelope. This makes for a tight, but still healthy, air space in the building.
