Sota completed construction of a 10 bedroom residential home in the Fox Chapel area of Pittsburgh using Energy Star Certification. This home has a HERS score of 50, which means it uses approximately half of the energy of a home built to current energy code requirements.
Energy efficient measures include: high efficiency windows, spray foam Icynene insulation, 100% under-slab insulation, and high efficiency ground coupled HVAC system.
