Passive Solar

Toronto Passive Home Design 

Facing toward the sun, one can feel its warmth immediately.  It is a powerful source of energy waiting to be utilized.  Just as plants naturally turn toward the sun, our homes also reap the benefits by using this method. With little effect on the budget, simple tactics such as building location and orientation have huge impacts on the comfort and energy use of a building.

Using energy modelling, we can calculate the perfect ratio of windows to wall to avoid overheating.  Even on a site with poor southern exposure it is possible to manipulate the design three dimensionally to capture critical rays.  Triple glazed windows, ensures comfort all seasons.
