As video host Jeremy Faludi points out, there’s no “one size fits all” approach to passive design – but there are some fundamentals that every homeowner and designer should know if they’re interested in reaping the benefits of passive home design. Passive design strategies can help reduce your building’s energy demands by using energy available from natural systems. Smart home design means affecting temperature and energy transfer through understanding the principles of convection, conduction, and radiation. Watch this video from Autodesk Sustainability Workshop to learn these fundamental properties of passive design in order to design a more sustainable, net zero building!
