“Even without the implementation of solar photovoltaic panels, the house is 42.8% more energy efficient than the standard!”
If designed right, with Tridipanel, a building can definitely be comfortable all year without the need for mechanical heating and cooling. However, if designed incorrectly, a Tridipanel building can end up wasting a lot more energy than a typical building.
Views are a major asset of this site and were a big factor in the location and layout of living spaces… In addition, the building was designed to passively heat, cool, and naturally ventilate, and to maximize natural lighting.
“I wanted to reduce the building’s footprint as much as possible, while limiting site work (grading and excavation), taking advantage of the views, optimizing south exposure for passive heating…”
