Construction is wrapping up on the NEW CECC ENERGY EFFICIENT MODEL HOME.
The home is owned and built by Dennis Jaynes.
It is located in Terra Hills, north of Jonesboro off highway 351. (103 Craighead 794 Rd, Jonesboro, AR 72401)
The home will feature many energy saving components and materials and was built using the latest high efficiency building practices.
Open house date is Saturday, April 16th, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will be open to the public.
Framing the 2x6 walls
Energy Efficient T's and Corners are being used to get the best coverage of insulation throughout the walls.
All interior Hot Water Lines are insulated in the wall cavity. Preventing any heat loss as the hot water travels through the line.
Windows have been installed. They have a U-Factor of 0.25 and Solar Heat Gain Coeffient of 0.26. We recommend a minimum of 0.30 on both the U-Factor and Solar Heat Gain Coefficient.
All windows are sealed with non-expanding foam around the perimeter of the window on the interior to prevent any air infiltration from entering around the windows.
Six inches of Open-Cell Spray Foam has been added to the roof decking, and walls.
The walls are sprayed with open cell foam and then smoothed down to the studs and are ready for the sheet rock.
Metal Duct Work is being installed and sealed with Mastic Tape. The special tape, not duct tape, will seal any air leaks between the joints of the duct. Also, notice NO flex duct is allow in a Craighead Electric Energy Efficient Home.
The home has a full Geothermal HVAC system. It will pull heat from the ground in the winter and put heat into the ground in the summer through 800 ft of buried underground loops. This has the added benefit of providing completely free hot water.
The HVAC units and hot water heater are individually metered so the homes energy usage can be monitored very closely.
