What is Passive House?

Passive House is a voluntary design and construction concept developed in Germany in the early 1990’s that delivers ultra energy efficient buildings.

Passive House involves an airtight super insulated building envelope, and a clever ventilation system that provides fresh outdoor air while recycling indoor temperatures.

The buildings are designed to remain between 20 and 25 degrees centigrade and 40-60% humidity using only a tiny amount of supplemental energy for heating and cooling. For example, a 200 square meter home is designed to be heated with a maximum of 2000 watts on the coldest day, the energy used for a common hair drier.​
