Passive Solar Heating and Cooling for EcoVillas in Ottawa
Location: Ontario, Canada
Studied the implications of making various Passive Solar design changes to the EcoVillas housing development project - House A. By making calculated changes in the home's layout and by changing the choice of window frame material, the home's projected energy performance can potentially increase by a significant level. This would be a result of establishing a more effective design for maximizing solar gains during the heating season while at the same time minimizing heat losses during the cooling season.
