The PassiveHouse standard is known for creating homes with an extremely small energy footprint, but did you know that it can be done simply, and even affordably?

PASSIVE HOUSE CAN BE SIMPLE – This state of the art low-energy home building style is actually based on simple technology. Smart design, abundant insulation, air-tight and vapor-tight constriction techniques, a 92% efficient air-exchange unit, a 10,000 BTU air-to-air source heat pump, and that’s pretty much it.

PASSIVE HOUSE CAN BE AFFORDABLE – A minimalist approach to design makes this possible. Minimizing exterior wall and roof area keeps material costs down. A simple roof line allows for speedy construction, saving on installation costs and keeping maintenance at a minimum.
