Fresh air supply
The fresh air supply directs outdoor air into WaterShed's interior.
WaterShed's storage tank holds up to 120 gallons of hot water generated from the solar thermal array.
Energy Recovery Ventilator
The Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) exchanges exhausted interior air and conditions incoming outdoor air.
Integrated Automation Equipment
WaterShed's integrated automation equipment connects the various systems of the house and catalogs information about energy and water use.
The HXEST pumps direct hot water from the hot water storage tank to water to air heat exchangers inside the LDW units.
Mini Split Control Power Supply
WaterShed's mini splits are energized by the system's power supply.
UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply)
The UPS is a power supply with a battery backup that ensures that the house automation will stay online for a brief time during a power outage..
Hot Water Manifold
The hot water manifold houses all the hot water supply lines, directing hot water from the water heater to each individual fixture.
Cold Water Manifold
WaterShed's cold water manifold houses all the cold water supply lines, directing cold water from the supply tanks to each individual fixture.
Mini Split Controller
The mini split controller allows the integrated automation system to centrally control both indoor mini split units and the exterior compressor.
WaterShed's micro controllers monitor the systems in the house and flip the relays to control mechanisms in the house.
Hot Water Expansion Tank
WaterShed's hot water expansion tank regulates the pressure of the water system as it is heated and expanded in the water tanks.
PV System Monitor
The PV system monitor displays information from the microinverters, logs how much electricity is produced, and sends it to an online database.
The database computer logs all data from the microcontrollers and makes it accessible.
Main Hot Water Tank
The main hot water tank boosts the temperature of water heated from the solar thermal system if necessary.
