Why Passive House?
The Passive House building standard is a rigorous and energy-efficient construction standard for buildings. The primary goal of the Passive House standard is to create highly energy-efficient buildings that require very little energy for heating and cooling, resulting in significant reductions in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. The Passive House standard is known for its ability to significantly reduce energy bills, improve indoor comfort, and reduce a building’s environmental impact.
