  2. Was wondering why you didn’t invest in any renewables since you’ve done
    such a great job with your passive home?

  4. That hot water manifold is a new one to me. Very cool and it makes
    absolutely perfect sense.

  5. The house seems well organized and positioned. It is not a completely
    passive house since you still use additional energy to heat the house but
    is probably close. I did not see what was the amount of thermal storage and
    the amount of thermal insulation. I’m also building my house already live
    there but is not completed you can see some photos on my google+ page. It
    will not be a passive house but I expect to use very little energy.

  6. I just installed a Burnham 85% gas furnace. The more efficient one had so
    much electronics that they recommended a yearly maintenace agreement. With
    the new furnace there is an option to have a waterheater attached that is
    heated by the furnace which I hadn’t heard of before. The plumber was
    telling me that the hot water on demand systems are not as efficient as
    they advertise and have design limitations. Maybe you can sell the pellet
    heater and buy a solar panel. Interesting video/ideas

  8. Well done, and an attractive home. I was mildly surprised the windows were
    not bigger on the south side of the house. What is the typical indoors temp
    when the outside is 12F?

  9. Hi Ames and Graham. The house looks great – at least it looks a lot better
    than when I saw it and the interior was only framed. Nice minivan!

  10. I think the pellet stove would still be useful as a backup—you never know

  11. The water manifold is great! I love this design! Sixty bucks to heat in
    January?? That is amazing. Im here in Wisconsin, a bill like that would be

    future maintenance that will have to happen.
