Passive House

A passive house is a super insulated air impermeable house with low thermal bridging. To function it must have a heat ex-changer pictured on the left of the drawing.IMHO especially in Canada it should be the new standard build.


  1. Superinsulation practices have become more common for decades now. What has been left out is the expense of the heat exchanger, resulting in stale air and threats to health from low oxygen, particle and chemical smog buildup, etc.

  2. Hi opit you are correct sir, I will add that to my post.

  3. It is very pleasant to see Intus Windows corner as an example for building a Passive House! Passive House is a great decision, we hope it will get higher acceleration with time
