Luxury Net Zero Energy Home
Boulder, CO

Project Description

At DMA Engineering, we had the privilege of undertaking a retrofit project for this existing mountainside residence. Our expertise shines through in the incorporation of an impressive 18-ton hydronic ground source heat pump system. This system was meticulously designed to cater to both the main 6,000 square foot residence, its accompanying 1,000 square foot auxiliary building, pool, spa and garage entrance snowmelt, ensuring exceptional efficiency throughout.

The heart of this system lies in its ability to power nine radiant floor zones, four ceiling zones, providing 100% radiant floor heating and cooling. This comprehensive coverage guarantees optimal comfort in every corner of the residence. We understand the importance of maintaining a healthy indoor environment, which is why we integrated Energy Recovery Ventilators into the system. This prioritizes the circulation of fresh air, ensuring a continuous supply of clean and invigorating indoor air quality.

With the integration of a robust 32 KW solar PV plant, this residence achieves an impressive Net Zero Energy (NZE) status. The utilization of renewable solar energy significantly reduces its environmental impact while providing abundant power for daily needs. The home uses a state-of-the-art control system that continually monitors the system operation, uses advanced control logic, and integrates with the home Automation System. The homeowners can revel in the perfect blend of sustainability and comfort, basking in the knowledge that their home exemplifies cutting-edge technology and environmentally conscious living.

Our client has unique needs and we have incorporated energy monitoring, weather stations, indoor air quality monitoring, and the data from the irrigation system. The home is on a well and use of water for their extensive gardens is critical to ensure the sustainability of their water supply. As the residence has grown with many unique features DMA has been a trusted partner for the past 12 years as the project matured.

At DMA Engineering, we take pride in delivering exceptional NZE solutions that transform homes into sustainable havens. Welcome to a world where sustainable living meets unparalleled comfort in this remarkably efficient home.
