Jason Pecoy

What It's About:

A demo at the 2017 HPBZ

What are the mechanical options that must be considered to ensure a home is comfortable and efficient? Jason will lead a discussion that details what Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) and Energy Recover Ventilators (ERVs) are and how they perform. He’ll focus on the impact a hot water heater has on performance as well as your lighting and appliance choices. Jason will also create a roadmap that will help you look at the “whole house” for performance instead of just concentrating on heating and cooling.
