21 Jan 6 Reasons to Consider a high performance “Passivhaus”
A “Passivehaus” TM Can be achieved with any Design Style or Building Budget.
There are absolutely no restrictions on size or architectural styles, this is due to the fact that our building standard concentrates on a few key building elements from proven and tested building science technology.
Future Proofed – Significantly Lower Carbon Emissions
Passive Homes produce significantly less energy than conventional homes, resulting in radically reduced CO2 emissions, making this is the most sustainable building standard in the world (no green wash). You save on energy and improve your life-style whilst reducing carbon emissions. This is the positive change the world needs to reduce global warming.
Healthier Home – Less Dust, Pollens & Allergens
Due to air tightness, energy recovery ventilation systems, controlled temperatures & humidity plus filtered fresh, you will be living and breathing a perfectly healthy environment, minimising levels of dust, Mold and pollens. The health benefits have been documented in several articles from people around the world living in “PassivHaus” homes; reduced illnesses, better sleeping patterns, less asthma and allergies have all been reported.
A Quiet Haven – Highly Reduced Noise Levels
By default, the higher quality of external materials insulates the outside noise, making your home noticeably quieter.
Unreal Comfort – Set Temperatures & Humidity all year Round.
You may have lived and experienced houses overheating in summer and freezing in winter, two level homes with upper level temperatures 15 degrees higher than the bottom level, the list goes on in Australia… Now imagine temperatures 20-25 degrees regardless of outside weather in both summer & winter, using minimal energy consumption. YES, it’s possible with a High Performance Passive Home.
Lifetime Energy Savings – Ultra Low Energy Consumption
By creating a sealed thermal envelope, minimal heating and cooling is required, therefore dramatically reducing your energy bills comparatively to standard building codes.This reduction in energy has nothing to do with solar panels, solar is considered a bonus! This innovative technology results in much lower monthly energy bills, providing families a lifetime of savings.
Indoor Air Quality – Filtered Fresh Air (No Cold or Hot Draughts)
The importance of indoor air quality that affects human health can not be underestimated. Concentration of pollutants indoors are 4 to 5 times higher than typical outdoor concentrations, and people now spend 90% more time indoors. With A H4 High Performance PassiveHaus, the risk of pollutants is reduced drastically due to our recovery ventilation systems.
Proven Tested Measured – 65,000 PassivHaus Projects Worldwide ✔
Would over 65,000 Passivehaus TM projects built and tested worldwide be enough to convince you it’s the best building standard in the world? A holistic approach from design to construction is required, there are very clear definitions and requirements set by the PassivHaus institute, and this has continually been proven from concept to completion.
