This North Toronto build focused on modern design and building science innovations to create a incredibly high performing home within the clean lines and space optimization of modern structures. In addition to geothermal heating and cooling integration within the flooring system, a thermal mass strategy was employed to harvest the Suns energy to passively heat the home during colder months. A Earth Tube was also included in the homes integration strategy to passively cool the home in addition to the geothermal cooling effects. Different from traditional air conditioners that ‘condition air’ and blow cold air into the home, a geothermal system actually removes the humidity from the indoor air resulting in what is described as a ‘fresh cool air’.
