                                         agrees, saying "More than R-40 is not necessary. The                                                          back rows of six adjacent townhouse units that all share a common attic.
                                         reason is that the other losses are always there (walls are
                                         only R-20, windows even less, and you can't change that)
                                         so the added benefit of more attic insulation becomes
                                         negligible." Can you tell us why you felt R-100 was
                                         reasonable in the attic at Riverdale?

                                             have learned it is The Ontario Power Authority who made
                                             the decision to introduce Advanced Renewable Tarriffs but I
                                             am not sure if they are applicable for 'the little people'.
                                             Also, could you tell me the brand name (and supplier) of the

                                             they were custom made, with four layers of glass. I wonder
                                             how far east these windows are available. Could you put in
                                             words the average person could understand (for my article)
                                             the reason for four layers of glass in the windows?

                                             - how hot does the water in the insulated tank gets at the                                             and informative to my project.
                                             end of the day? Would it be possible to use a small indoor
                                             pool instead of the tank, so it can be used as a hot tub in the
                                             evening? I am thinking about 3x4x1.5 meter pool, well
                                             insulated and covered.
                                             - the forced air ventilation, is that a good choice? How silent
                                             is the system, especially in the night? Can it be built
                                             completely silent so I don't hear it at night?
                                             I will incorporate passive solar into the house and I was
                                             struggling with finding a way of allowing the air to move
                                             naturally around the house. But this is not very easy so I'm

                                        pool instead of the tank, so it can be used as a hot tub in the                                              in the Ottawa area. I have looked at your project and I find it very inspiring
                                        evening? I am thinking about 3x4x1.5 meter pool, well                                                        and informative to my project. Can I get drawings for the house walls and
                                        insulated and covered.                                                                                       roof? If you don't mind I'd like to ask you if you have any other information
                                        - the forced air ventilation, is that a good choice? How silent                                              that might help me with my design.
                                        is the system, especially in the night? Can it be built                                                      Many thanks in advance and keep up the good job.
                                        completely silent so I don't hear it at night?
                                        I will incorporate passive solar into the house and I was
                                        struggling with finding a way of allowing the air to move
                                        naturally around the house. But this is not very easy so I'm
                                        thinking about having a forced air ventilation system.
                                        - are the Conergy panels one of the best choices or you
                                        know a better made by now?

                                        a very simple heat pump connected to the solar heating
                                        system and you mention on your website that "with this
                                        configuration, the heat pump would cause the solar heating
                                        system to be more efficient". How are you connecting the
                                        solar water heater to the heat pump? Does the heat pump
                                        heat the water going to the solar water heater or does the
                                        solar water heater heat the water going to the heat pump?
                                        Why not just more solar water heater panels?

                                             days. I was planning on regular foundation with exterior
                                             rigid insulation, but am considering the ICF product. I
                                             would like to know your opinion on the two methods. Also,
                                             when they are excavating, I was thinking of putting in a
                                             cistern (plastic) for catching rainwater and using it for
                                             watering my yard and garden. I have a half acre lot. What
                                             size would I need?

                                             building myself something similar out in the country,
                                             incorporating some of the ideas; especially the interior walls
                                             and newspaper insulation. How would I get a set of plans to
                                             build this? Also, incorporating fly ash in the concrete
                                             interests me, but I'm hesitant due to the fact fly ash can
                                             aggravate allergies. How would I find out whether or not the
                                             concrete is suseptible to the same problem.

                                          1.5 story home similar in size to RNZ and is to have the
                                          same major features except that a masonry wood heater will
                                          be added for use on the coldest days and as heat backup.
                                          The masonry heater could also be used to heat water and
                                          add heat to the water cistern etc. The plan is to add the
                                          solar PV (or windmill) at a later date after it becomes
                                          evident how much electricity is needed to get to net zero.
                                          Our site is in the country so there is plenty of space to put a
                                          cistern underground rather than in the basement. A shed
                                          could be placed over the cistern which would also house the
                                          solar thermal panels. Rather than use cocrete, I was
                                          considering a preformed tank, possibly a used oilfield or
                                          agricultural tank. Is this a feasible idea? Do you know of
                                          suitable tanks that could be properly insulated, etc.

                                             Ingram (Daily Planet) while I was coincidentally reading his
                                             book. I am researching the viability of solar / alternate
                                             energy solutions for my home in Bragg Creek. I would be
                                             most interested in your findings for effective solutions for
                                             this climate. Jay Ingram was quite excited about your
                                             project. He also has a house in Bragg Creek which he is
                                             interested in upgrading with some form of alternate energy.
                                             I am approaching this opportunity in three phases -
                                             understand what we consume without changing habits -
                                             reduce what we consume by updating appliances or habits
                                             where it matters - build an alternate energy solution to
                                             match our reduced needs. The Riverdale house is a "new
                                             house" with many clever features to dramatically reduce
                                             energy usage. What can I do with my 1990's house to
                                             make it energy efficient... I would prefer to re-use my
                                             existing house rather than build a new one.

                                             watching the Riverdale NetZero project and noticed that
                                             some of the appliances and plumbing fixtures that have
                                             been installed in the units differ from those in the Technical
                                             Proposal. Is an updated list of the appliances and fixtures
                                             available? We are also interested in why the particular
                                             models were chosen.

                                             Thanks very much to both of you for the quick responses.
                                             By the way your RNZ project has influenced more than
                                             just our appliance and plumbing fixture choices.
                                             We’ve incorporated most of the insulation details
                                             including double 2x4 walls, use of cellulose insulation
                                             and R24 under the basement slab among others.
                                             While we are not shooting for net zero (yet), we’re
                                             confident that we will have a highly energy efficient
                                             home thanks to information available from your
                                             project. Well done gentlemen.

                                             the Riverdale Project. I have reviewed the project summary
                                             sheet online and have seen the projected energy
                                             consumption and production but do you have any actual
                                             performance data collected to date? Also it would be
                                             helpful to arrange an interview yourself or someone else
                                             involved with the project to discover a bit more about the
                                             design and construction phases.

                                             21. How can solar energy heat the house at night?
                                             The heat from the solar heating system is stored in a very
                                             well insulated 17,000 litre cistern in the basement. The
                                             cistern stores enough heat to keep the house warm for 2
                                             months in the early winter.
                                             We will need some backup electric resistance heating from
                                             the electrical grid in the middle of the winter. This will be
                                             fully “re-paid” back to the grid in the summer.

                                             for me.
                                             1. What were some of the challanges you faced while
                                             building this house?
                                             2. If you could recommend a few of the
                                             materials/applications for a tyipcal homeowner to use to
                                             reduce energy consumption in their own home what would
                                             they be and why?
                                             3. What would you say are the top 3 reasons to build a
                                             netzero home?
                                             4. What are some of the key points you would like to
                                             educate the community on about the netzero project?
                                             Any information you are able to give me on the Riverdale
                                             netzero project would be a great help.

                                         closely examined your double wall (scale) model and also                                                      St. Catharines, Ont.
                                         reviewed your PowerPoint slide shows. My father have been
                                         studying the netzero concept with the intention of building
                                         our own. We have toured most of the equilibrium projects
                                         and have come along way with regards to the steep learning
                                         curves required during projects like this.

                                             While we are still at the design stages of this project, we are
                                             arguing back and forth about our wall system. Our builder
                                             (who is part of the project) likes the ICF systems but due to
                                             the cost and R-values, I am pushing for a double wall
                                             system like yours. How can i create a scale model of your
                                             system so i can bring him on side? Is that something you
                                             protect? I would very much like a manual or blue print on
                                             how to replicate your success.

                                            outside 100 concrete on middle and 80mm eps on inside. it
                                            gives me U value 0.12 which basically keeps the heat
                                            demand under 4KWH even in -25 degrees. I am having
                                            180 square meter house. Currently run only heatpump that
                                            takes outside air to water. it is all I have and suits well.
                                            however could be benefical to install solar power. I could
                                            taking heated water from it for 6months perhaps.

                                            photovoltaics. I am currently working on an extracurricular
                                            project having to do with modular home construction as part
                                            of an Alberta Research Council competition. Our theme is
                                            the benefits that modular construction offers regarding
                                            reduction of energy usage and CO2 emissions, while also
                                            exploring the potential for incorporation of renewable energy
                                            solutions that would make them more accessible to
                                            homeowners. Your comments regarding the potential
                                            affordability of netzero homes were particularly intriguing as
                                            they are congruent with the theme of our project. I am
                                            somewhat familiar with the Riverdale and Mill Creek
                                            NetZero projects that you have worked on, and am
                                            interested in discussing some of the results of these
                                            projects with you. In particular, I am interested to hear your
                                            thoughts on whether netzero building principles and designs
                                            could easily be adapted to a modular construction approach
                                            and thereby make them more accessible to individuals
                                            (who, from what I can tell, are eager to adopt these things
                                            but currently feel unable to).

                                            regarding the insulation of that wall with cellulose. Did you                                       Greg.Labbe@greensaver.org, www.greensaver.org
                                            face the wall on both sides (drywall on inside and OSB
                                            outside) then insulate with dense pack cellulose by drilling
                                            holes in one of the faces to tube the walls full? Or did you fill
                                            the wall cavity with only VB up on inside with OSB on
                                            outside? I’m trying to determine how feasible it is to dense
                                            pack walls with cellulose with only a VB on the inside. I’ve
                                            tried this and found that the insulation bows out too much
                                            and fastening of drywall to stud faces becomes very
                                            difficult. If you have any tips on how you would approach
                                            this I would greatly appreciate your pointers. I’d even
                                            appreciate knowing what kind of machine you used and if
                                            the walls were ‘tubed’.

                                        found it through the CMHC Equilibrium website and read
                                        the reports, but I am most curious about how you built the
                                        foundation to support that double wall while maintaining high
                                        insulation levels.
                                        I found a written description of the foundation insulation in
                                        the FAQ section of your website, but what I would really like
                                        to see is a detail drawing. Any format will do.
                                        Thanks for your time, and thank your for making such a
                                        serious effort to reduce our environmental impact.

Sun,/2010/Mar/28        info request   I am renovating a 60 year old house in Smithers BC and          Gordon          done                     1 from Micheal Sawyer <sawyer@hayduke.ca>                                                               x                                                                                                  x                                                                                                                                                               x
                                                wanted to get your advice on a couple of the approaches
                                                you used in the Riverdale Project. First, I wanted to get
                                                your advice on what yourcurrent choice of windows would
                                                be. I understand that you used Duxton quad-glazed
                                                windows - were you happy with the windows from a
                                                performance, quality, service and cost perspective? Are
                                                there any other manufacturers that you would recommend
                                                now and if so, why? Any advice on windows would be
                                                appreciated... Second, I note that you used blown Wallbar
                                                insulation from Can-Cell Industries Inc.. After using it,
                                                would you recommend it again? And can it be self-applied
                                                by a home owner or does it need professional application?

                                                examples of the Equilibrium Housing Program. It is how I                                                   construction carpentry student at Algonquin College in Perth, Ontario
                                                became familiar with the Riverdale NetZero project. I am
                                                designing a home for a class project and would like to use a
                                                deep wall system. I have a some questions about the deep
                                                wall system that was used. Firstly, is the fibremesh
                                                necessary. I have researched some examples that the
                                                cellulose is packed right against an ADA drywall system
                                                with VB primer. Do you see any issues not installing the
                                                mesh? Secondly concerning the sheathing, could "Black
                                                Joe" be used in place of the OSB, with tactical sheathing on
                                                the corners for support. In the EQuilibrium Insight I saw
                                                that some small changes were made in the DWS in the next
                                                few homes that were built after the Riverdale project. I am
                                                interested in what you have changed to make it more
                                                efficient or easier to build.

                                                Congrats on the project. It looks like the best of the bunch.
