Active for more comfort: The Passive House


How does a Passive House or EnerPHit building work? Which requirements exist with regard to components, planning, design and project implementation? Which suppliers offer the necessary components? Who plans Passive House or EnerPHit buildings and who implements their construction or renovation? What is it like to live in a Passive House, what has already been built and why are Passive Houses and EnerPHit refurbishments such an attractive investment? In order to competently answer such questions, the International Passive House Association (iPHA) has created an informational brochure entitled, Active for more comfort- The Passive House.
