What is a Passive Home?

A passive home has the following traits:

  • Exceptionally high level of thermal insulation
  • Well-insulated window frame with triple low-e glazing
  • Thermal-bridge-free construction
  • Airtight building envelope
  • Comfort ventilation with highly efficient heat recovery
  • A comfortable home because of even heating and a uniform indoor climate
  • High reduction of CO2 emissions
  • Nothing unordinary or extreme is required from the homeowners

The Benefits of Passive Home Building

Built with the future in mind

Today’s houses use large amounts of energy, draining our supply of available resources.  Passive House homes and buildings recycle and reuse energy on a consistent basis resulting in a very small carbon footprint.

 

 

 

Adapted to local climate

Each passive home is built with the local climate in mind and can be implemented anywhere in the world. Depending on the local climate, whether more hot or more cold, a plan is put in place to ensure maximum efficiency for the energy output and comfort level of the home.

 

 

 

Savings to the homeowner

Passive House homes and buildings have shown results in savings of more than 90% against the average consumption in traditional homes.
