Hi, we are planning to build a home in the Canadian Rockies, we would like to incorporate a grid tied, ground mounted solar system into our design.  Given that we are hoping to generate a portion of out own electricity what would be the best method of heating the house.   Most people in this area seem to use propane for heat but we are thinking in floor heat and an electric furnace.

Are we on the right track ?

The home will be a one story with walk out bassment approx 2500 squft max.

Obvously we will try and make the building envelope as energy effient as posible.
