Passive Construction

Passive House concept represents today’s highest energy standard. Passive House is a extremely-well insulated, virtually air-tight building that is primarily heated by passive solar gain and by internal gains from people, and electrical equipment.  Window orientation and shading helps to avoid heat gain and limit any cooling load, while a energy recovery ventilator provides a constant source of balanced air supply. Resulting in a remarkable system that not only saves up to 90% of space heating costs, but also provides a distinctively wonderful indoor air quality.

Passive House is THE best way to retrofit a house that needs refurbishing or to build a new house if you want to reduce its carbon footprint and yours.
