2010 Livable Communities Awards

The dual-zone heating/cooling system includes energy-efficient air conditioning and air filtration systems, programmable thermostats and a furnace with a variable-speed blower. A manifold water supply system (left) limits the amount of water in the supply lines. The tank-less water heater (right) heats only the amount of water required when someone turns on a faucet. Low-flow faucets, showerheads and toilets reduce water usage. The builder encourages owners to choose Energy Star appliances. — Text by Michael Chotiner; Photographs by Chris Usher
