Last weekend, we had our first true test of how comfortable the house is when the temperature goes down to -20 C. It did fairly well- never dropping below 16 C inside without any heat on. On a sunny day, it would hit 22 C inside, again without supplemental heating. We mostly used the wood fireplace to get the house comfortable. I had also just barely wired up the baseboard heaters in our bedrooms. Phew!
|Got these baseboard heaters installed just in time.|

One of the nice things is that Clifton from Great Canadian Solar hooked up the web-box to the inverter, so we can view/post our daily power generation! You can see it by clicking here.
So, we'll endeavour to keep everyone posted on how well the system is working.
Another milestone was that we finally finished all the guardrails! Yay! So, here's Dan loading up the very last guardrail for the stairs!
Now it is much safer running up and down. Hooray!
