Let's construct buildings that offer extremely low energy use. Let's create healthy socially-responsible homes that are economical to build and maintain. An innovative construction method using readily available building materials called Passive House can do just that.
More living comfort, less energy
A Passive House combines high-level comfort with very low energy consumption. Passive components like thermal windows, insulation and heat recovery are the key elements. Each Passive House is an active contribution to climate pro- tection. On the outside, Passive Houses are no different from conventional buildings, because the term “Passive House” describes a standard and not a specific construction method.
What‘s so special about a Passive House? It’s all in the details:
Exceptionally high level of thermal insulation
Well-insulated window frames with triple low-e glazing
Airtight building envelope
Comfort ventilation with highly efficient heat recovery
