Why Passive House?

Heat Recovery Ventilation or HRV. A constant influx of fresh air is being brought into the home, while simultaneously expelling stale air, especially from high foot traffic places like bathrooms and kitchens.

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.

CORE PRINCIPLES

  • Continuous Thermal  Insulation
  • Avoiding thermal bridging
  • Airtight construction (less than 0.6 ACH/50)
  • Heat Recovery Ventilation
  • Thermal Bridge free construction
  • Triple pane windows
  • Passive solar gain (without overheating)
