High-performance Heating and Cooling

Cutting-edge equipment and careful installation combine for high-efficiency. SunTerra Homes has incorporated several types of high-performance heating and cooling systems to further reduce annual energy expenses. These include: geothermal heat pumps, air-to-water heat pumps, active solar and night flush cooling.

These systems are designed to lower electrical heating and cooling costs by an additional 50 to 70 percent.

Most SunTerra clients choose hydronic radiant floor heating for comfort and efficiency. This system can also be used for cooling, but the capacity is limited by the potential for condensation on the floor surface. When cooling needs exceed the capacity of the hydronic floor, an additional air distribution system is best.

Most SunTerra house plans incorporate alternative energy systems to some degree. The Conservation Guide helps you choose the most cost-effective heating and cooling system for your home.
