As winter approaches the phone rings! Where were you?

This fall Vermont Modular has become a very busy place.  Last week we ordered a big house for central Vermont and as we speak there are two homes in the plant being built.

It seems as though all summer long people are “…at the beach” enjoying summer in Vermont.  But, just in case you haven’t noticed the leaves are turning and almost everyone has turned on their heat.  I’ve had the heat on for a couple weeks. 

It happens every year without fail.

We live here in Vermont where many will comment that the weather is simply awful.  Much of the year it is cold, snowy, ice covered, windy, and for some us just miserable.  However there is nothing quite as wonderful as a summer in Vermont.  The results of my very NON-scientific study reports that during the summer people are at the beach, eating hot dogs, and simply enjoying summer, worries about winter’s cold are ignored.

Can I sill order my home for this year?

Do you believe it is already the first of September?  Where did the time go?  I am suggesting that Summer simply slow down and hang around longer.  This coming weekend is Labor Day the unofficial end of summer.  (excuse me while I weep and wail)

Just this morning we were down in southern Vermont checking out a job site and finalizing drawings for a winter ski house.  The plans call for this rather large ski house to be finished and occupied by Thanksgiving.  Is that possible?  Of course it is!

How about those Heat Pumps! Amazing.

Just this morning I was curious and wanted a first-hand testimonial about how effective Cold Climate Heat Pumps (CCHP) actually are; so I did the only natural thing – I called one of our Vermont Modular homeowners who also had a CCHP installed for them in the plant.  Our homeowner after the winter and hot summer is thrilled and very glad that they had the Heat Pump installed in their new home.  Today’s photograph is a picture of their Heat Pump Compressor.

Speaking of summer heat and condensation……

As you know we’ve been talking about how cold things such as foundation walls, soda, and beer all “sweat” during the summer heat.

I am sure all of you have seen a window air conditioner that is dripping water out the back of the AC unit.  That water is the moisture has condensed from the air conditioner.  The one I have at my house has been ardently working in the recent heat, there’s usually a puddle under the air conditioner.

How about fresh air? Sounds like a good idea!

Yesterday we finished the discussion of Septic Systems and today it might be a nice change of pace to talk about something that actually smells nice – fresh air

Every time we build your new home to be more and more and more energy efficient it means that less and less heat is lost.  In order to significantly cut back on heat loss we must stop Cold Air Penetration and conversely we are trying to stop Heat Loss.
