ReNEWW House

The home – called the ReNEWW House for Retrofitted Net-Zero Energy, Water and Waste – is a multi-year research project in which Whirlpool Corporation is working with GeoComfort, Purdue University and other industry partners to retrofit a 1920s vintage home into a net-zero energy, water and zero-waste-to-landfill structure. The home was built in 1928 and has about 3,000 sq. ft. of conditioned space, three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. It is two stories tall and has a full basement - which has been converted into a living laboratory.

Enertech Global provided a a GeoComfort® Compass Series® geothermal system for the ReNEWW House project. Geothermal systems take advantage of a fairly constant underground temperature between 45° and 70° F. A water solution flows through pipes buried in the ground and absorbs heat from the earth in the winter, which is transferred to the geothermal system inside the house.
