A Different Kind of Warmth

Our Unique Homes Can Be Built in Many Different Styles
  • We design, engineer and market a unique concept incorporating
    proper solar orientation, a superior 6-sided insulation envelope and a large air integrated thermal mass system.
  • Our unique homes can be built in whatever size, shape and style you desire, i.e., contemporary, saltbox, traditional, etc.
  • Insulated and sealed on all six sides with 4" of polyisocyanurate (foam board) yielding a performance level of R38, 7 to 9 times higher than typical new homes.
  • Customer SatisfactionAn integral air handling system powered by a small fan gathers air at the peak of the house and pulls it down an airshaft to be delivered, through a grid work of pipes, buried in a heavy (70-100 ton) mass storage system under the lowest floor, and back to the house interior perimeter.
  • Air Quality: Healthy high winter humidity levels of 45-50 % are maintained at all times.  Filtration 3 times per hour of all indoor air eliminates most dusting. Steady temperatures changing only 4 - 6 F. in 24 hours because of mass tempering.
  • Self-regulating system allows owners to leave for any winter months by simply turning the key, the house will never freeze. Excellent for a second home or ski lodge. Retired people enjoy the constant warmth, maintenance free operation and minimal fuel bills.
  • AAE has built over 300 Low Energy Requirement homes across
    30 years in 15 eastern states.
