The Passive House is the world’s leading standard in energy efficient construction. Energy saved in heating can be up to 85% compared to conventional building standards. These savings are reached without compromising comfort, but rather increasing it. The Passive House is economically viable through affordable construction costs with significant reductions in energy needs and carbon emissions.
In summary, Passive House is the set of performance standards, a software tool for energy modelling, and specific construction strategies. The Passive House standard is simple but not easy to achieve. Meticulous calculations and construction detailing are required to insure the high performance result.
