Heat pump–ready manufactured homes

Published in

A U.S. Department of Energy Advanced Building Construction research team (Slipstream, Northwest Energy Works, and FSEC) identified a relatively new class of heat pump equipment that could prove to be a good fit for manufactured homes and can save residents more than 50% of their space conditioning energy usage when replacing electric resistance heating in cold climates.

This case study shows a heat pump installed in a new Clayton manufactured home located in the heating-dominated region of Oregon, where it was able to handle most of the heating load with very little need for back-up electric resistance heat.
