While most homes aim for and have an air-tightness rating of 28, the ARISE Home system achieves an air-tightness of 0.997, a rating unheard of until now. With only one-tenth the carbon footprint of traditional construction, this is the first building system that can be taken completely off the grid. The HVAC, lighting controls, security, air quality, and water conservation are all monitored and installed withSMART technology, with the latest in user-interfaces. Hot water is supplied through a tankless hot water heater, allowing for on-demand hot water, reducing water waste.
