eHaus Euro features

Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation
The intelligence of PassivHaus design. This system works efficiently in the background so you can breathe fresh air and stay warm while using less energy.
Our homes have fresh filtered air, with up to 98% of pollutants removed - you can guarantee your tissue consumption will be reduced!
Superior Insulation
We use the right amount of insulation to match your regional climate. With a fully insulated slab, eHaus’ are made to keep more heat in, like a thermos flask.
Air Tightness
eHaus’ are built air-tight to stop draughts and air leaks, saving you money and creating a beautiful, quiet space to enjoy.
Windows and Doors
Fitted with thermally efficient Low E & Argon gas windows that eliminate condensation, draughts and mould. Double or triple glazing also captures free solar energy and reduces heat loss.
Constant Temperature Technology
You can live in every room of an eHaus no matter the season. Every room is designed to operate between 20–25° all year round.
We offer a full design service, taking your dreams from concept to reality.
No THermal Bridges
Thermal bridges are one of the most significant sources of energy loss within a building. An eHaus is designed to stop this escape and save energy.
Modelled using PHPP
Every eHaus is measured to international standards for energy efficiency and comfort while still on the plans. Giving you total confidence your architecturally designed house will perform.
Unprecedented heating energy efficiency
The Euro maintains a minimum temperature of 20°c using up to 15kWh per m2 for an entire year. Comparatively, a typical NZ standard code build home would require at least 120kWh per m2 to maintain a similar temperature for a year.

We have a dynamic team of designers
working across the country

Our designHaus is packed full of clever thinkers and makers that understand the principles of Passive House and have a unique ability to make them work together to design a space where you and your family can thrive.
