Curious to learn more about the Passive House standard and what sets it apart from regular building standards? Start with our FAQs below and contact us if you have any further questions.
Passive House is an internationally recognised building standard that delivers a building that requires very little energy for space heating or cooling. The result is a home that provides a warm and comfortable living environment. The temperature is even throughout the home and operates typically between 20 and 25 degrees, while consuming minimal energy. Passive Houses consume between 75%-90% less heating energy than a conventional house.
We also recommend having your eHaus Passive House independently certified, this provides you the assurance that all the Passive House criteria have been met.
The clever part is in each climate region the internal comfort and consumption of energy is the same. Whether your eHaus Passive House is in Northland in the middle of Summer, or Southland in the middle of Winter, the internal temperature of every room stays between 20 – 25 degrees. Providing you with a healthy, warm and comfortable environment for your family to live.
