We love Net Zero homes because they produce as much energy as they use. They’re also more comfortable than conventional homes because of their exceptional air and environment quality. Us Canadians spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, and our environment quality affects how we perceive everything from sound and light, to odour, temperature, humidity, and even vibrations within the home.
A massive contributor to One Raven achieving Net Zero was installing Passive House certified, triple pane windows and doors. These help keep the house at a comfortable temperature year round—oriented south to maximize solar gain in winter, with shading to stop overheating in summer.
The home’s airtight envelope also has super thick, super insulated walls to further reduce the need for heating and cooling. Up top, rooftop solar panels generate enough electricity to cover the clients’ entire annual energy usage—easy on the planet, and on the bank balance.
