Bernard Proulx built this Passive House for his son in 2016. Can you tell by looking at it that there is no furnace and it relies almost entirely on the sun for heating even on the coldest days? A 2 kw electric fireplace is available for extra heat if needed.
When I reach Wanda Martin, it is -47 with wind chill, and her Passive House is warm and comfortable. And she has no gas bill! Greater Sudbury’s plan to reach net zero carbon emissions aims for all new homes to be Passive Houses by 2030. Sounds great to me!
