Are you designing, engineering, or building high performance buildings? Are you looking to live or work in an environment with fresh clean air and hot water? Are you interested in how high performance building is reducing greenhouse gas emissions and saving energy one building at a time? If so, please join as at the ShiftBuilding Symposium on May 30, 2018 at UW-Bothell!
Mighty Energy is proud to sponsor ShiftBuilding and help bring professionals together to share and learn about new applications that heat, clean air, and warm water more efficiently than ever before. Learn what these systems are doing to the building market today and where to find them.
Featured speakers Shawn Oram and Skander Spies will present Professional Development Hour sessions and workshop tracks with industry representatives who will connect you with information about products for high performance construction. You’ll also hear case studies from these experts and connect with UW students graduating into the mechanical engineering field. The event begins with a networking lunch with trade associations and additional partners.
The Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance recently published new research on the market saturation of ductless heat pumps (DHPs). They found that consumers are mostly motivated by the significant energy savings (up to 50%) that heat pumps offer. However, the study findings also show that one of the most prohibitive factors to installing this energy-saving technology is the high cost of installation. You can read the full study here.
Lowering the cost of a DHP install can be as simple as reducing the number of heads needed in a home. This can be done by adding supplemental heat source that is distinct from the DHP system. Often, the lowest cost, most efficient way to do this is with infrared radiant heat. Contact us for more information on how radiant heat can complement your ductless system!
Mighty Energy is proud to sponsor this year’s Built Green Conference on September 14th! A great way to end the summer, this event brings together professionals throughout the green building industry. The day includes sessions, speakers, and boundless opportunities to learn and connect with others excited about sustainability. This year’s keynote speaker, Alan Durning of the Sightline Institute, will discuss the intersections of green building, affordability, equity, and building policy/zoning. We’re also excited to announce that Mighty Energy will be hosting a conference session this year!
Heat – It’s Not Just Your Grandfather’s Forced Air Anymore!
This will be an interactive panel discussion on various types of efficient heat and their applications, moderated by our very own, Laura Elfline. From infrared on your ceiling, to radiant floors and heat pumps, industry experts will discuss the best solutions for many situations:
Is a heat pump really the most efficient heat source? Is it cost effective to put radiant floors in remodels? Why put heaters on the ceiling if hot air rises? If you’ve ever wondered about these questions, this session is for you! Our region has a goal of being carbon neutral by 2050. To accomplish this goal we need to complete multitudes of deep green energy new construction and retrofits in our existing residential and commercial building stock. Heating systems are a major factor when it comes to green construction and retrofits, and builders and designers need to stay abreast of the best energy efficient solutions for different situations. Eco-friendly heating solutions are not one-size-fits-all. Remodels often require a completely different heating system from newly-built homes, which are in turn, fully distinct from multi-family projects. In an expert panel compromised of professionals in the breadth of efficient heating solutions we will look at the variety of options for efficiently and effectively staying comfortable and the newest innovations in the marketplace, how to utilize new solutions as standalone or hybrid solutions, how systems perform in a variety of scenarios, and will discuss the best applications for each solution, along with available rebates. Panelists will also share case studies of winning and lasting applications that made a difference for their clients and the community. We hope to see you there!

Did you know there are an estimated 10,000 people in the United States who now have a tiny house as their primary residence? And the reasons people are making this shift vary almost as much! From sustainability to affordability, and improving family relationships to living a simplified lifestyle. This article introduces you to a diverse group of people who have made the choice to downsize. Efficiency and simplicity are key factors when choosing how to heat a tiny home. And our radiant heating products are an ideal solution. Contact us for more info!
We are excited to announce a new addition to our line of energy-saving, ultra-cozy heating solutions, Comfort Cove Heaters by Radiant Systems! These slimline heaters are installed high on the wall in the “cove” of the ceiling, which keeps them out of the way of furniture and in an advantageous spot for effectively warming everything in the room. Similar to Infrared Radiant Ceiling Panels, they heat the objects and people in a space directly instead of blowing air and allergens around. This creates a more comfortable temperature, faster. Which in turn, results in energy savings for you. It’s a great solution as a stand-alone or hybrid heat system! More here.
