Window choices in Vancouver, BC
I am in the process of designing a small 980sq ft home near Vancouver. I’m aiming to build to step 5 on the new step code, essentially close to passive standards. The time has come to decide on windows and its one of the areas I’m least knowledgeable. Do any members have advice on manufacturers or window lines available in the area, or even Canada that strike a balance between price and performance?
I have have alwaysaassumed and associated high performance/efficiency buildings with triple pane windows but is that a valid assumption? What would I give up with a high quality double pane window? Are there any features I should be looking for?
