The Passive House Standard is rapidly becoming the leading standard for new ultra energy-efficient buildings.
It’s an entirely voluntary standard that covers the entire design and build process – ensuring that new buildings are created with energy efficiency in mind from the very beginning.
Here at Blue Water Concepts, we’re Passive House Certified Builders and our in house designers are passionate about helping our clients to reduce the environmental impact of their new builds from conception right through to execution.
Passive Houses are specifically designed to work in tandem with the local environment, harnessing energy from the sun to warm the house in the winter months, and well thought out ventilation and cooling techniques to reduce the inside temperatures in the summer. The use of a high-efficiency HRV (Heat Recovery Ventilator) means that your building will have a continuous supply of filtered fresh air, perfect for people with allergies or sensitivities to the smoke we are often experiencing in the summer months.
Typical Passive Houses can achieve a reduction of up to 90% on heating and cooling energy compared to a traditional house.
Not only does this drastically reduce the overall energy requirements but it also benefits the environment and helps to move us closer to a low-carbon future, it also leads to a lifetime of reduced energy bills and costs for you and your family to benefit from.
If you’re interested in building the industries most energy-efficient home, the Passive House standard is a great place to start.
As a full-service design and build company, Blue Water Concepts is uniquely positioned to help your Passive House vision become an environmentally friendly reality.
