8000 square foot modern architecture by world renowned architect Ricardo Legoretta. Features high ceilings, sharp rectangular lines and an abundance of light. The entire building is heated with embedded radiant hydronic tubing through insulated PEX distribution to manifolds by zone controls with slab sensors and air sensors.
Controlled by the digital energy management system, the unique features of the mechanical system include de-humidification, whole house ventilation with variable speed exhaust fan and filtered outside air make-up. Multiple fan coils provide zone controls with dampers.

The Climate Right System (CRS) installed in this country home remodel in Atherton, CA was specified by Monterey Energy Group, Pacific Grove, CA. It was purchased by the general contractor, Canyon Construction, on behalf of the homeowner. The CRS provides hot water to a radiant floor heating system installed by Westhaven Construction, and distributes chilled water and heating hot water to hydronic fan coils.
A Clear Edge Power CE5 stationary hydrogen fuel cell combined heat and power system provides 5KW of grid connected electrical power 24 hours a day as well as 20,000 Btuh of 150°F waste heat. The CRS manages distribution of this continuous supply of hot water by storing it in a 160 gallon storage tank manufactured by Triangle Tube and a second 119 gallon storage tank by Heat Transfer Products.
