What Is Passive House?


Passive House is relevant to any climate, but the other question I’ve been asked is: “Is it relevant to our lifestyle?” Australians love the outdoors, and on beautiful sunny days all we want to do is throw open the doors and windows and leave them that way. Contrary to popular belief, there’s absolutely nothing stopping this in a Passive House. But when it gets bitterly cold or stinking hot, a Passive House will let you close everything up, keep the heat in (or out), and still have a constant supply of fresh outdoor air. A well-designed Passive House gives the occupant total control over internal comfort, with minimal energy use.
