Passive Solar House built using Passive House Principles. 1st of its kind offered on the market in BC.
Super insulated walls (17`` thick; R58); Double wall assembly; Triple glazed windows.
Save money every month on utilities, while gaining comfort and contributing to a healthier environment.
The key innovation here is this is the 1st house of its kind to be offered for sale in Vancouver on the open market. All other passivhaus projects in BC were purpose-built for an owner who is in the industry (ie. architect, builder). This project, by contrast, is competing directly with code minimum construction across the city (certainly with a higher level of comfort, and lower energy costs).
The Passive House Standard has proven successful in sharply reducing energy use in thousands of buildings over the last 25 years, making it an ideal basis for a Net Zero Energy Building.
