Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 08, 2014
Jacobs Heating and Air Conditioning helped 45° Central, a new housing community in Beaverton, meet their sustainability goals by installing a highly energy-efficient heat pump system, tankless hot water heaters, and heat recovery fresh air ventilation that minimized the homes’ carbon footprints while providing superior comfort.
45° Central is built around values of sustainability, convenience, and comfort. Their goal was to create homes that balance supreme livability with top-tier energy efficiency. Since 1952, Jacobs has been Portland's leader in HVAC, and their expertise in emerging sustainable technologies made them an ideal fit to find sustainable heating and cooling solutions for the 45° Central homes.
Developed by Metropolitan Land Group, 45° Central is a reduced footprint community centered around the values of aesthetics and convenience. Its 26 acres feature pedestrian pathways and bike lanes, and its close proximity to Nike World Headquarters and Intel enables a walkable lifestyle for commuters.
In order to make the homes as sustainable as the layout, the developers wanted all of the 120 condominiums and 240 detached houses to not just meet, but to exceed current energy efficiency codes. Their goal was to make the homes comfortable for residents without negatively affecting on the environment. Jacobs HVAC tapped into decades of experience to provide the homes with cutting edge heating and cooling systems that match the residences’ livability and comfort.
Jacobs’ HVAC expertise and eco-friendly commitment enabled 45° Central to stand out as a model mixed-use community and a paradigm of sustainability.
