PassivHaus Facts

Passive House is a highly energy efficient building standard that also promotes indoor comfort and acoustic insulation. Passive House is not only one of the world's leading energy efficiency standards but also a construction concept made to build comfortable, environmentally friendly and affordable homes and buildings. 


Passive House buildings also provide a healthy and quiet indoor environment. As we now spend such a significant period of our time indoors, the buildings we live in clearly have an impact on our health and well being.


Construction costs vary from country to country but are said to be around 10% more. These costs are largely dependent on the availability of qualified
professionals and suitable components.

A whole-life cycle cost analysis carried out by EnCraft, proved that even if a Passive House building cost 10% more to build, it would still have lower lifecycle costs than traditional buildings.
