Reimagining HVAC for New Manufactured Housing: Feasibility Assessment Report

Published in

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems currently included in manufactured homes can be characterized as low-cost systems that deliver expensively conditioned air through ductwork prone to leakage. The challenge is finding pathways to increased manufactured home energy performance that are attractive to manufacturers, dealers, and buyers without substantially raising the purchase price.

This project identified 13 innovations for the HVAC systems installed in new manufactured homes and recommends four innovations for innovation testing. Innovations in HVAC systems could improve energy efficiency, durability, and indoor air quality to the benefit of manufactured home residents and the industry.
