Insulated

Special windows and a building shell consisting of highly insulated exterior walls, roof and floor slab keep the desired warmth in the house – or undesirable heat out.

Comfortable

Passivhaus buildings are also praised for their high level of comfort. They use energy sources inside the building such as or solar heat entering the building – making heating & cooling a lot more efficient.

Efficient

Passive House buildings allow for energy savings of up to 90% compared with typical existing buildings and over 75% compared with average new best-practice constructions. Similar energy savings have been demonstrated in warm climates where buildings require more energy for cooling than for heating.

Ventilated

A ventilation system consistently supplies fresh air making for superior air quality without causing any unpleasant draughts. A highly efficient heat recovery unit allows for the heat contained in the exhaust air to be re-used.
