Passive Homes Australia
Would you like to build a low-energy home that is beautiful and paradise to live in?
By following German Passive House building standards you are able to achieve the highest standard of comfort and air quality in the world.
In a nutshell Passive House building is a rigorous, voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, reducing its ecological footprint. It results in ultra-low energy buildings that require little energy for space heating or cooling.
Did you know that 30% of the energy that you need to actively heat your home can be harnessed by using the natural body heat of occupants and the heat emitted from electrical appliances i.e refrigerators, hot water, range, computers etc. Furthermore, passive solar energy can contribute up to 25% and with a heat recovery ventilation system (HRV) to recapture and recirculate warm air you can achieve a further 28%.
The HRV system is the mechanism that controls the air temperature inside the home and enables a comfortable and constant living environment.
