Through innovative construction methods, the Passivhaus principles create a comfortable and clean living environment:
- Very high levels of insulation
- Well insulated window frames and glazings
- A significant reduction in air changes
- Ventilation with highly efficient heating or energy recovery
These features work together to ensure optimal living comfort all year round with minimal energy demand resulting in radically reduced heating and cooling costs. Plus those who build a Passivhaus will enjoy a constant supply of fresh air throughout the house and a drastically improved indoor environment.
