All of those things sound great. I already maximize solar gain through windows to reduce heating load, and minimize it in the summer.

I'm in the market for an EV currently.

I've researched ground source heat pumps; and they only work if you've got room and a lot of extra cash up front, and live in a non-temperate climate.
