Electro Plastics, Inc. (EPI) (dba STEP Warmfloor) invented the only low-voltage, flat, homogeneous self-regulating Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) heater in the world, but that is just the beginning: it still needs a stronger government and industry recognition.
Often times, the early use of an invention is far different than what the future holds for it. Such is the case for nano particles and their Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) properties.
Nanotechnology research has been rapidly intensifying in several fields such as biomedical, optical and electronics. Now it is being used to create an efficient heating source inside of homes and buildings. The white paper explains what nanotechnology is and how it is transforming the way we heat our living spaces.
Nanoparticles, the microscopic particles having a very high surface area to volume ratio, will likely be your source to future heating comfort and efficiency.
Water is just as precious a resource as energy in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.
If you want to be at the top of the green building programs, you have to do the best of everything.
The Proud Green Home of Louisville is a sustainable, high performance home that will earn certification from multiple green building organizations.
Photovoltaic (PV) panels and other onsite renewables generate DC, but these systems still incur losses. Grid-connected renewables require an inverter to convert their DC to AC for the grid, even though it is changed immediately back to DC for onsite use.
The overall mission of Norton Commons is to provide its residents with More Life Per Square Foot.
The Proud Green Home of Louisville was designed and constructed with healthy living in mind.
Good design pays for itself, and the proof can be seen in the Proud Green Home of Louisville.
This home reflects what what the builder has learned so far about creating living spaces focused on good health, well-being, energy-efficiency, water-efficiency, durability and social and environmental restoration."
One of the top goals of the Proud Green Home of Louisville was to create a highly energy efficient yet very livable home.
After studying electrical heat options and other radiant heat systems requiring maintenance, one homeowner decided to go with STEP Warmfloor.
Oftentimes, radiant heating systems are installed with new construction or when replacing carpeting and other flooring material, or during a remodeling project. The thin, 1.2 mm, STEP Warmfloor heating membrane that utilizes low voltage energy, can be cut and easily...
In their infancy, solar panels and radiant heating systems were great concepts waiting for a marriage of the two. Their respective technologies were efficient enough but consumer costs were prohibitive. Today, demand for both has created vast efficiency improvements by...
From an innovative use of waste products from door manufacturing to new applications for radiant heating, green home inspiration was a major theme for 2016.
Residents often see significant ice build-up on their roof’s edges in the winter months. These ice dams are created by two basic elements: snow and heat. There are many “fixes” to the ice dam dilemma, but they do not always address the root of the problem. The best way to prevent ice dams is with effective, extra-low voltage radiant heat.
The Italian-inspired, energy-efficient Proud Green Home of Louisville includes several energy efficient attributes included in its captivating Italian-inspired architecture by Clive Pohl of Lexington, Kentucky-based Pohl Rosa Pohl.
