Why Should Your Next Home be a Passive House?

Based in Ottawa, Canada, EkoBuilt’s mission is to spread passive homes across Canada and the US.

We work tirelessly to share information through our blog, social media channels, and our YouTube series The Passive House Show.

The building industry needs to change to meet Net Zero goals, and we believe we offer the best system for individual home home owners and increasingly those wishing to build multi-unit dwellings.
