Project Profile: Mamaroneck Passive House

A 3,000-square-foot dilapidated house from the 60s stood vacant in Mamaroneck, New York for years. It had a leaky roof, faulty gutters, mold, humidity damage, bad ventilation, termites – even squirrels in the attic. That is until homeowner Veronique Leblanc came along.

Veronique purchased the house because of the location that offered views of the Mamaroneck Harbor and proximity to the downtown village and country club. She knew she had a lot of work to do. An inefficient envelope and outdated equipment resulted in energy costs averaging $10,000 a year, and the home wasn’t even comfortable to live in.

Veronique planned to retrofit the house with a driving goal of saving energy: “For me, the best energy is the one you don’t use.” She attended a New York Passive House event where she met architect Andreas Benzing. Andreas shared her vision, and the two set out to create the Mamaroneck Passive House.

Under Andreas’ guidance, Veronique chose our ductless cooling and heating system. It delivers the extreme efficiency needed to meet Passive House standards; offers complete control over energy usage and savings; and affords personalized, year-round comfort for the family.

The cherry on top: a 70 percent reduction in energy consumption and the Urban Green Council’s Power to the People Award.
