Passivhaus is a building standard that denotes true energy efficiency, comfort and affordability. Passivhaus is not a brand name, it is a tried and tested construction concept that can be applied by anyone, anywhere.
A Passivhaus building is a low-energy structure that allows for space heating and cooling-related energy savings of up to 90% compared with typical building stock and over 75% compared to average new builds.
Passivhaus make efficient use of the sun, internal heat sources and heat recovery, rendering conventional heating systems unnecessary throughout even the coldest of winters. During warmer months, Passivhaus properties make use of passive cooling techniques such as strategic shading to keep comfortably cool.
