Passive House Presentation Draft 3 15 09 Ajc

  1. 1. PASSIVHAUS** ** why we can’t wait
  2. 2. What’s happening?
  3. 3. Building energy use is a major contributor to the climate change energy emergency. Passive House is the most rigorous approach tackling this predicament and certifying it.
  4. 4. Passivhaus performance
  5. 5. Passivhaus advantages 100% outside air with MERV13 filtration min 64°F surface temp = comfort Thermal bridge free construction eliminates condensation No MOLD! Bathed in natural light Quantum leap in energy efficiency                                         Rigorous quality control and verification Zero energy achieved with minimal expense
  6. 6. Passivhaus aesthetics
  7. 7. Passivhaus building types
  8. 8. Passivhaus and . . .
  9. 9. Passivhaus basics Insulation optimization with air-tight construction & no thermal bridges Balanced - constant, low velocity, 100% fresh air, with high efficiency heat exchange passive heating in heating season, with heat gain controlled by shading in cooling season Balanced Integrated design and PHPP: the passive house planning process passive,
