Event Details

Architect Harry Hunt will present the concepts and principles of Passivehaus or the Passive House Movement developed in Germany and based on passive solar research conducted in the 1970s by the U.S. Department of Energy. Good passive design can reduce the thermal load of a building by 90%, primarily through super-insulation, an airtight envelope, good windows, and heat-recovery ventilation. The principles of the Passive House stress the importance of a super-tight, well-insulated thermal envelope that allows the use of very low amounts of fossil energy to heat the home. According to the Passive House standards, the heating requirements cannot exceed 1.4 kilowatts per square foot (kW/sq. ft.) per year. A typical house built to code uses 14kW/sq. ft. to 18kW/sq. ft. per year.

Please join us in learning about this not-so-new technology that has come of age and help change the mind-set of your clients.
