BA-PIRC Partnership with
KB Home

Orlando, FL

KB Home GreenHouse

BA-PIRC worked closely with the Environments for Living program to support final construction, commissioning, and certification activities on KB Home's first maximized energy efficient home, KB Home GreenHouse (see photo). This home was recognized with certifications including the U.S. DOE Builders Challenge, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR and WaterSense qualification, LEED for Homes Platinum and Environments for Living Green.

BA-PIRC participated in the development of promotional materials that were displayed and distributed during the 2011 International Builders' Show (IBS). BA-PIRC also plans to work with KB Home, PNNL, and Environments for Living to evaluate performance of the home’s advanced package of measures. Of interest is the combination of a dual speed 2 ton heat pump (second stage is 1 ton), ERV, and whole house, duct mounted dehumidifier together providing comfort in this 2670 sq ft home.
