Very Cold

In the first part of the text, which describes the Basic Very Cold Climate House, you will find a step-by-step explanation of how we applied climate-specific design and building science principles. The second section describes advanced technology packages that can be added to further increase the energy savings achieved by the basic house. At every step, we show you how our decision-making was guided by the whole house energy model.
