Passive House is the world‘s leading standard in energy efficient construction and are 90 percent more efficient than a code built home.
The Passive House Standard stands for quality, comfort and energy efficiency. Passive Houses require very little energy to achieve a comfortable temperature year round, making conventional heating and air conditioning systems obsolete. While delivering superior levels of comfort, the Passive House Standard also protects the building structure.
A passive house is designed to have very little thermal bridging and have consistent insulation throughout the building envelope. These houses are extremely air tight and have a maximum of 0.6 air changes per hour at 50 Pascals pressure.
Here is a short video explaining the concept in detail.
