PASSIVE HOUSE 101
 

Passive House is the world's leading standard in energy efficient building construction. The Passive House Standard stands for quality, comfort and energy efficiency. By focusing on the following five principles a building's annual heating and cooling needs could be drastically reduced to levels around 10 percent of a typically constructed building.

 

  • Continuous insulation layer

  • Air tight construction (draft free)

  • High performance windows and doors

  • Thermal bridge free detailing

  • Optimal indoor air quality and heat recovery
