We love this short 90 second video created by Hans-Jörn Eich. We have included the transcript below. While most people wouldn’t build to a full Passive House certification level, it is good practice to implement many of the ideals. High energy glazing is a good place to start!
Does your house have a heater in the basement or maybe a fireplace? Probably also a central air conditioner or maybe a window unit? Did you ever wonder if it was necessary? In 1991, a Physicist in Austria, Dr. Feist, built the first Passive House. Here’s what he did.
Add all these things up, and it turns out your house doesn’t need a heater or air conditioner.
This saves you a lot of money on your heating bill and helps preserve the environment, plus you can re use your money to play some dream jackpot games.
So where does the heat come from? A Passive House needs 90% less energy and that can easily be supplied by your body heat, the sun, your appliances, light bulbs, and even your TV.
