IntelliChoice Energy (ICE), a leader in green solutions for heating and cooling, is once again bringing their NextAire™ product line to the New American Home for the 2013 NAHB International Builders’ Show.
The nearly 6,000 square foot home is being built in the Marquis Seven Hills development, which backs onto the Rio Secco Golf Course in Las Vegas, Nevada. With the goal of achieving National Green Building Standards, Blue Heron has chosen two 8-ton NextAire™ multi-zone units to heat and cool the home. Tyler Jones, Owner of Blue Heron, said, “The NextAire units are superior to conventional systems and any time we have a chance to use them we do.”
Jones went on to say, “Due to their use of clean natural gas to heat and cool the home and its energy efficiency, which is a great benefit to the end user, it was an easy decision for us at Blue Heron to use the system.”
The NextAire™ Gas-Fired Heat Pump product line was specially engineered to be environmentally friendly while providing a new benchmark of efficiency excellence in heating and cooling. Its primary fuel source is clean, plentiful, natural gas and uses only a minimal amount of electricity.
Tim Cone, Chief Operating Officer of IntelliChoice Energy, said, “70% of the original source energy is lost when an electric HVAC system delivers air to buildings. Since the NextAire™ Multi-zone GHP uses 80% less electricity than traditional electric HVAC systems; they greatly reduce a home’s demand for electricity and reduces its carbon foot print.”
The efficiency created by using natural gas is just one of dozens of ways the New American Home is reducing its carbon footprint. As stated by Rocky Magee, Vice President of Sierra Air Conditioning in Las Vegas, “It’s the latest technology coming out and is a perfect fit for the New American Home.”
