HVAC for High Performance Homes

In new homes, poor HVAC design and installation practice accounts for more energy waste than any other single factor. Unfortunately, when it comes to HVAC, it's easier to sell high efficiency boxes than high efficiency systems, a distinction invariably lost in a competitive marketplace. As a result, HVAC remains the weakest link in most high performance homes.
