what is passivehaus

What is Passivhaus? 

Passivhaus, in simple terms, can be described as the innovative standards of energy efficiency. Also known as Passive House, it refers to buildings designed to maintain diligent energy ratings consistently with very little need to use heaters in winter or coolers for summer. Globally considered one of the fastest growing, high energy performance standards have also been achieved by more than 30,000 buildings since 2000. 

Considering that buildings are responsible for 35% of the energy consumption in the whole world, Passivhaus provides a solution to the current climate crisis. Simply by relying less on heaters or coolers, which are powered by fossil fuels, you will lower your use of electricity and carbon footprint. With that being said, you can achieve net zero and a reduction in energy bills. For example, a 70m² house designed with Passivhaus standards could pay as low as £25 annually on gas heating.

Why Choose Passivhaus Standards? 

If you have been looking for a home improvement project that lowers your carbon footprint, you might want to check out Liniar's Zero|90, Passivhaus-certified, uPVC windows and doors at Bluemanor. Especially considering that it is a scientifically tried and tested method of achieving outstanding thermal results. 

The secret to their rigorous thermal efficiency lies in airtightness with mechanical ventilation. Though many of us who might have old windows and doors with limited ventilation are used to damp issues in our homes, to avoid long term issues with condensation, fresh air needs to be regularly coming in with stale air extracted in a controlled manner.

With airtightness, the mechanical ventilation heat recovery system transfers heat from the outgoing to the incoming air. Therefore, avoid heat losses due to air gaps and make your home more comfortable and cosy with better energy efficiency. 

Alongside scientifically proven results, homeowners with Passivhaus approved windows and doors also report the following benefits. 

• Increased indoor air quality

• Better acoustic performance & noise reduction

• Draught proofing 

• No more damp related damage

• Less demand for heaters
