The 5,233-square-foot tan-colored contemporary colonial house at 272 Catamount Road, Fairfield has 10 rooms.
In 2013, the all-electric heating system was converted to a high efficiency combination hydronic (water circulating)/forced air heating system. At the heart of that system is a high efficiency Buderus condensing gas boiler, which runs on propane, according to the listing agent. The 1000-gallon propane tank, buried on the property, was installed in 2013.
The efficiency of the heating system is aided by the use of spray foam insulation in the entire attic, the construction of the house using 2-by-6 framing on the exterior walls, and the addition of rigid foam insulating board before fiberglass insulation. The three combine to create a super-insulated house. The attic insulation allows for “conditioned space for storage” that stays within ten degrees of the house temperature, the agent said.
