Up to 50% More Energy Efficient,
Over 65% Less Carbon Emissions*
Than the Average New Home
* when using conventional natural gas. Close to zero emissions when using Renewable Natural Gas (RNG).
Wilden is determined to make climate-friendly living the new norm. In close cooperation with FortisBC we are leading the way by building homes that optimize energy efficiency and minimize carbon emissions. Most of the homes in Lost Creek Point are built to BC Energy Step Code 4, one step away from net zero. The smallest unit type (Santina) hits Step Code 3 out of 5.
All Lost Creek Point units are ENERGY STAR certified.
It was the knowledge gained from the Wilden Living Lab that has enabled us to design and build homes that use approximately 50% less energy for heating, cooling and hot water. Wilden has initiated the Living Lab together with UBC Okanagan, FortisBC, AuthenTechn Homes and other stakeholders.
Even if you prefer to use 100% regular natural gas versus RNG, you will still minimize your carbon footprint to approximately 35% of the average new home due to the energy-saving initiatives we’ve built into the Lost Creek Point townhomes.
For more info and an in-depth explanation please view our video.
Energy-saving initiatives include:
- Superior exterior wall insulation and exceptional air tightness
- BOSCH Air Source Heat Pump:
- uses outside temperature as the base energy source
- keeps additional energy demand at a minimum
- continuously adjusts to meet demand and minimize operating cost
- learns your preferences to keep room temperature consistent
- extremely compact, discreet and quiet, installed outside of the building
- Tankless, condensing hot water heater quickly heats the water on demand
- Only the water needed is heated (no tank!)
- High-efficiency gas as a back-up source for heating (carbon-neutral RNG for 1 year)
- Passive space heating in winter thanks to windows with solar gain function
- Passive space cooling in summer thanks to large overhangs providing shade
- Wall/window ratio ideal for temperature management
- Heat recovery ventilator
