Building Envelope Animations
We believe in an envelope-first approach to low-energy buildings. We think a good envelope means a smaller mechanical system. We believe in good form factors, great orientation, extra insulation, low thermal bridges, excellent windows and doors, airtightness, and small + energy-efficient mechanical systems!
Five critical barriers explained
Net Zero Energy and Passive buildings require heating (and sometimes cooling), ventilation and hot water systems that are highly efficient. This section contains a series of animations that explain how a variety of mechanical systems work. These animations should help you, your clients and / or your family understand how Zero Energy buildings operate.
