I keep mentioning the work I did covering Malcolm Isaac’s Passivhaus home experiment for the pages of Ottawa Magazine.
Malcolm applied the ideas of well engineered insulation to house construction and ended up with a reasonably priced 1700 square foot home that consumes about $400 of energy per year to run – including heat!
Why do I keep bringing up Malcolm on the blog?:
- With Malcolm’s advice I have seen our 140 year old leaky home – too hot in summer, freezing in winter – become more comfortable than many modern homes with air conditioning!
- His ideas will save buckets of money, pollution and energy
- He is presenting his ideas on:

Stay warm, keep cool, reduce energy.
