Project Description:

The Peconic Bay house is a RES4 Prefab that adopts a saddlebag element to accommodate vertical circulation and service items. This RES4 Prefab was conceived as an efficient solution to a tight 3 bedroom 2 bath home. Located on southern edge of the great Peconic Bay on Long Island, the primary house volume is sheathed in warm western cedar while the saddlebag mass is sheathed in a cool slate cement board. The house sits perched on a high point of the site and aims to take advantage of the bay view from it's second floor living spaces. This 2,004 sf house includes a living area and kitchen along with a master bed and bath upstairs. Downstairs are 2 guest bedrooms, a bath as well as a media room/study and entry. Using its roof-top solar panels and its high efficiency geothermal HVAC system, this house is its own power plant, contributing power back to the grid daily.

Green Keys:
Site: This compact prefabricated home features many sustainable assets ranging from site selection to the use of renewable energy. A sustainable site evaluation avoided using an environmentally sensitive site by selecting an edge development lot within 1/2 mile of existing water & sewer along with basic community resources and public transportation.
Sustainable Landscape: A basic landscaping design limits turf, incorporates drought tolerant plants and avoids invasive plant species. The permeable groundcover and carpark limit water run off while permanent erosion controls, such as protective retaining walls, have been designed and installed.
Geothermal HVAC: The HVAC system is an energy star approved forced-air geothermal unit. The open loop geothermal well eliminates exterior condenser units, minimizing ozone depletion and global warming contributions.
Photovoltaic System: A renewable energy generation system is incorporated into the house. A 9,000KwH roof-top solar array has nearly eliminated electric bills.
Prefabricated Construction: This modular house also incorporates advanced framing techniques and minimizes framing waste. The homes manufacturer is an approved planet-friendly home factory and incorporates an extensive waste management and recycling program in their plant operations.
Energy Conservation: The project utilizes efficient windows and low-E glazing that exceed energy star rating for Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC) and U-Factor. In addition to incorporating energy star appliances,

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lindsey M. Roberts added this to Energy-Efficient Windows: Understand the Parts
Insulated. Double-glazed, triple-glazed, or storm windows allow space and air between panes (see the above diagram.) This lowers the U-factor as well as the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). In addition to air, space can also be added to lower the U-factor more. Gas fills or low-E coatings can also be added to insulated windows to further increase efficiency. Low-E coatings. These coatings increase a window's cost by 10 to 15 percent, the DOE says, but they can reduce energy loss by about 30 to 50 percent. The coatings reduce the U-factor but can also reduce visible transmittance unless it's spectrally selective. For hot climates or windows that get a lot of sun, the low-E coating should be on the outside of the glass. For keeping heat inside the house in the winter, the coating should be on the inside of the glass.

Open interiors, multiuse spaces and a connection with the outdoors are signatures of most modern prefabs.

2. Window Glazing There are a variety of options for your window glass, too: gas fills, heat-absorbing tints, insulated (double- or triple-glazed), low-E coatings, reflective coatings and spectrally selective coatings. Gas fills. The most common gasses used are argon, which is relatively less expensive, and krypton, which is more expensive but has a better ability at decreasing a window's U-factor. Heat-absorbing tints. These come in colors such as blue, green, gray, bronze or black. Tint doesn't lower a window's U-factor, but inner glass layers or spectrally sensitive coatings can be added to help with that. Gray and bronze reduce heat and light; blue and green allow more visible transmittance (VT) but only slightly reduced heat transfer. Insulated. Double-glazed, triple-glazed, or storm windows allow space and air between panes (see the above diagram.) This lowers the U-factor as well as the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC). In addition to air, space can also be added to lower the U-factor more. Gas fills or low-E coatings can also be added to insulated windows to further increase efficiency. Low-E coatings. These coatings increase a window's cost by 10 to 15 percent, the DOE says, but they can reduce energy loss by about 30 to 50 percent. The coatings reduce the U-factor but can also reduce visible transmittance unless it's spectrally selective. For hot climates or windows that get a lot of sun, the low-E coating should be on the outside of the glass. For keeping heat inside the house in the winter, the coating should be on the inside of the glass. Reflective coatings. These coatings block solar radiation but also VT and glare. They do reduce SHGC, though, which is a plus. The DOE says that this kind of glazing works better in hot climates, but since it does increase the need for indoor lighting, the energy savings can be minimal. This type of coating is good for special applications. Spectrally selective coatings. These coatings are great because they cut out 40 to 70 percent of the heat but still allow the light through. That means a low U-factor and SHGC but high VT. Spectrally selective coatings can be used to reduce the electric-based cooling needs of new houses in hot climates by more than 40 percent, the DOE says.
