CEBus House

B.C. Advanced House



The B.C. Advanced House is one of ten homes built across Canada as a challenge put forward by CANMET (Energy, Mines and Resources Canada). This home was designed by Richard Kadulski and built by Warren Jones in Vancouver, B.C.

Horizon Technologies was the key designer and implementer of the Home Automation System in the B.C. Advanced House.

Horizon Technologies has based its' technology on the CEBus Standard (Consumer Electronic Bus) to control the home appliances.

The HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning System) is state of the art with multi-zone heating. The multi-zone controller was designed and constructed by Horizon Technologies. The heating system includes a hot water tank that supplies four zones of radiant floor heating and a four zone forced air heating system. The air in the house is completely changed once every three hours using a fresh air heat recovery unit.

More details of the home can be seen in this large cutaway view.
