The Eco House uses solar tubes on the southern face of the roof to generate hot water. The energy from the hot water is also used to heat the house. The energy from the water is transferred via a heat exchange system to the air circulation system and low voltage fans in the ceiling transfer heat throughout the whole house. The house is super-insulated, air tight and all windows are triple glazed.
Electricity generated by a 5kw wind turbine is stored in a large battery bank. Power consumption is much less than a typical home, an energy management system operates continuously.
