Net Zero Homes And The Advantage Of Choice

By | 2016-03-31T13:16:42+00:00 March 31st, 2016|Net Zero|Comments Off on Net Zero Homes And The Advantage Of Choice

When you think of super efficient, super green homes, the two terms that come to mind are Passive House and Net Zero homes. Of these two, passive house builds are unquestionably the more popular choice in terms of the number of homes constructed. It's hard to say why this is exactly, but part of the reason may be that the passive house 'movement' has been [...]

Big Oil Email Leaks Shows Bribery and Corruption

By | 2016-03-30T13:13:41+00:00 March 30th, 2016|News|Comments Off on Big Oil Email Leaks Shows Bribery and Corruption

We don't really like to talk about big oil and gas directly on the Solar Blog. We're interested in renewable energy, green energy, clean tech and how that all ties in to efficient home heating systems. Our opinion is that oil and gas are slowly but surely edging their way off centre stage, and that there's just no need to go around shouting about it [...]

Prevent Hay Fever With Radiant Floor Heating

By | 2016-03-29T13:03:54+00:00 March 29th, 2016|Radiant Floor Heating, Health|Comments Off on Prevent Hay Fever With Radiant Floor Heating

As we creep towards April, the flowers are out and the sun is starting to make regular appearances in the sky (something worth celebrating here in Vancouver!). While this is all undoubtedly good news, there's a big minority of people out there whose reaction to the changing weather will be mixed, to say the least. For hay fever sufferers, the beginning of the summer months can [...]

Geothermal Heat Pumps Pros and Cons | Geothermal Myths Busted

By | 2016-05-31T19:34:47+00:00 March 24th, 2016|SunPump, Heat Pump|Comments Off on Geothermal Heat Pumps Pros and Cons | Geothermal Myths Busted

Geothermal heat pumps make great heating systems for homeowners. They're energy efficient, (but not true renewable), they remove the need for a fossil fuel burning boiler (reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the process) and they can pay for themselves within just a few decades through reduced heating bills. They also operate as a primary heat source, which means that a home will not need another source [...]

Why Every Home Needs Radiant Floor Heating

By | 2016-03-23T13:04:19+00:00 March 23rd, 2016|Radiant Floor Heating|Comments Off on Why Every Home Needs Radiant Floor Heating

As a resident of Vancouver's West End, home to some of Canada's most inefficient and poorly insulated apartments, a comfortable heating system like radiant floor heating is something I long for. As things stand, I have traditional (and by traditional I mean ancient!) wall-mounted radiators positioned below large, paper-thin, single glazed windows in the living room and the bedroom. As you can imagine, the heat from the [...]

Every year the Canadian Mechanical and Plumbing Expo is where the best of Canada's heating, HVAC, plumbing and refrigeration companies come together to share what they offer with the public.

Green Vancouver Must Continue To Lead The Way

By | 2016-03-01T12:49:04+00:00 March 1st, 2016|Uncategorized|Comments Off on Green Vancouver Must Continue To Lead The Way

On Wednesday, Vancouver will (literally) go green to welcome both Globe 2016 and a climate change-centred First Ministers' Meeting. In the buildup to these events, we have focused on Vancouver and British Columbia on the Solar Blog all throughout February. We've examined the city's 'greenest in the world' 2020 action plan, along with B.C.'s Climate Leadership Plan (which is still open for public consultation). We've looked at some of the [...]
