ABOUT PASSIVE HOUSE:
Building to the Passive House Standard reduces our buildings’ operational energy demand to an optimized extent through passive measures and components such as insulation, airtightness, heat recovery, solar heat gains, solar shading and incidental internal heat gains. Passive House reliably delivers up to approximately a 90% reduction in heating and cooling demand and up to a 75% reduction in overall primary energy demand when compared to our existing building stock– meant to aggressively meet the climate crisis carbon reduction imperative while making a comfortable, healthy and affordable built environment.
