Passivhaus Core Information
A Passive House (Passivhaus) is a building in which a comfortable interior climate can be maintained without active heating and cooling systems. The house heats and cools itself, hence the term “passive”. Typically a Passive House operates on the following basis:
- passive external heat gains from the sun as well as internal gains from appliances and the building’s occupants
- significantly notable levels of airtightness and insulation with minimal thermal bridges
- a high level of internal air quality provided by a mechanical ventilation system that recovers heat, efficiently
The inclusion of high level thermally insulated windows and doors is critical in achieving these criteria. This Passive House Institute certified component is your opportunity to participate in this exciting concept.
