365 Project – Day 117 Austria Passive House

Green technology at it’s best and just one of the legacy items from the Vancouver 2010 winter Olympic Games in Whistler is Austria House.

“The heart and lung of Austria House, as this is the system that allows it to breathe, stay warm and circulate the hot water it produces through its veins in both floors. It’s the drexel und weiss aerosmart heating and ventilation unit, that pulls warm air from the ground, heats it through a sophisticated and highly efficient technique, heats water with it, pumps the heated water through both floors and freshens and replenishes the air for this 3,000 square foot house, every two hours. It also heats the water for all other domestic uses.”
