  • Make Lemonade

    Want to know how to maximize your return on investment and turn lemons into lemonade? Look for these features and technologies when replacing your HVAC system.

    John Kane and Cody David of Southface install an “Ecobee” thermostat, one of the new generation of learning thermostats,  at the Southface Energy and Resource Center. As with older programmable thermostats, if set correctly, these controls can effectively reduce energy consumption based on usage patterns. Newer learning thermostats can integrate user occupancy on a real-time basis and are controlled in a wifi environment.
  • Atlanta Press Club Tackles the State of Regional Transit

    Panelists agreed that the region has improved its infrastructure and the public perception of transit, but that the area has a lot of room to grow with regards to connectivity and serving the majority of residents. In the coming weeks, Southface will focus coverage on animportant upcoming vote that could address infrastructure expansion and operational funding for transit projects throughout the city.

    The crowd at Atlanta Press Club has the chance to ask a few questions toward the end of the program.
  • Signaling Continued Improvement

    What if a text could alert you to a small water leak in your home? These “small” energy and water leaks can really add up over time, and most building owners or tenants would not realize that they had a problem until the utility bill arrived, often weeks later. WaterSignal is helping to change that.

  • Hope and Will’s Room Promotes Health and Wellbeing at Southeastern Designer Showhouse

    “Hope and Will’s Room,” located on the terrace level, is the result of thoughtful collaboration between Rabaut Design Associates and Southface. The room increases public awareness of the impact our buildings have on our wellbeing by implementing evidence-based design standards such as biophilic design for improved health, and by specifying no- to low-VOC and Red List Free items to minimize exposure to harsh chemicals.
