The 5 principles of Passive House

Thermal Insulation

Passive Houses avoid the heat to escape when there are low temperatures and prevent it of getting in if it’s hot.

Thermal bridge free design

Thermal bridges are points where heat losses take place. A passive construction detects these leaks in order to correct them.

High-performance windows & doors

Doors and windows are key points in the transmission of heat. As the rest of the house, they should be suitable to get a proper enveloping.

Airtightness

Airtightness is the capability of the building’s exterior cover of blocking the path of air currents

Heat recovering ventilation

Dual-flow ventilation system with heat recovering allows to replace the air of a room and warm it by using the air which is getting out.
