What is a passive house?

Passive house is a high-performance building standard that is internationally recognized. It is a science-based energy building standard. The home is extremely insulated and air tight. The building is typically composed of pre-fabricated insulated panels that are assembled on site. The panels must be passive house rated and verified. Packages include verified passive house high efficiency windows and doors. These measures result in an exceptionally well-built home that is energy efficient, has a low carbon footprint and is comfortable to live in year-round. Passive House Canada has developed software, used in the design process, to meet the passive house targets.
