What is Passive House
A Passive House is an advanced energy-efficient standard which produces superior indoor quality while reducing heating energy use. Any remaining heat demand is provided by an extremely small source. An energy recovery ventilator also provides a constant, balanced fresh air supply. The Passive House system can save up to 90% of space heating costs.
