With air quality at the forefront of everyone mind, it’s a great time to consider the energy efficiency of your home. Not only does energy efficient construction reduce your energy loads and operating costs, it can also drastically increase your air quality.
Passive house construction is a method of energy efficient building design and construction focusing on high levels of insulation and air tightness. The benefits to having a tight building envelope is the ability to control the air quality.
By eliminating outside air we can ensure that the air inside your house is cleaned and changes over every hour. Stale air does not hang around, and outdoor air only comes in when wanted.
Passive house construction promotes not only energy efficiency, but also clean indoor air, quiet interior spaces, and comfortable spaces with consistent indoor temperatures.
