THE PASSIVE HOUSE - WHY FUTURE PROOF YOUR HOME
The Passive House – Why Future Proof your Home?
As Certified Passive House Designers (CPHD) we are trained specialists in designing low energy & passive homes.
The Passive House is a building standard that is truly energy efficient, comfortable, affordable and ecological at the same time.
The Passive House Standard is a well recognized and reputable template for achieving low energy buildings. With careful and measured methods of design, we increase the life quality experienced of the end user in terms of comfort, health and financial well being. The Passive House will not only save you money over the long term, but are surprisingly affordable to begin with. As the transition of building regulations head towards nearly zero energy buildings, it makes sense to aim towards these higher standards of design and construction to ensure the future proofing of your home.
Each design goes through a process of analysing energy performance on each individual site using accurate simulations of climate conditions which optimise the design solutions and allows us to calculate an estimate of yearly running costs of the building. Each decision is based around initial cost versus running cost savings, term of payback and the overall health and energy experienced in the building. All information is then provided to the client in order for them to make an informed decision as to how they want to proceed in terms of specification standards.
As Certified Passive House Designers listed on the international database & members of the Passive House Association of Ireland, we can show you how to heat your building for less than €1/day.
Without sound advice and the right design expertise that we can offer, it is easy to spend a lot of money and not add any real value to your project.
