What I love about this home
UNIQUE DESIGN FEATURES
Not only does the second floor have radiant heat, there are also three climate controlled HVAC systems. You have back up, humidified forced heat and air conditioning. The bedrooms have separate zones along with the great room, kitchen, and the dining area. The first floor has its own HVAC system and is zoned separately. Also, the garage has a separate heater so you can get into a warm car in the winter.
The house has hardwired smoke detectors, heat detectors, and motion detectors. The exterior gates can be automatically operated inside and any visitor can be viewed on the monitor while you talk to the individual on the phone.
Multiple security panels (3 total) are strategically located throughout the house. The system automatically dials the police/fire in the event of a problem.
The exterior of the house was completely pointed and sealed. All windows are ten years old and were custom made.
The roof is a built-up roof and was new ten years ago and is in excellent condition.
The HVAC systems are all programmable commercial units.
The entire house is wired with CAT-5 wiring.
The owner is an engineer and personally designed the HVAC and electrical system. The heating bills are only $500/month on the budget and the electrical bills average $250/month.
The house has a ground capacitor (saves a ton electrically), and the showroom is also wired for 220V.
