According to Passivhaus.org, Passivhaus (or ‘Passive House’) is the fastest-growing energy performance standard in the world. Comfortable, healthy, sturdy, and affordable, a Passive home performs 60-85% better than its traditionally built counterparts and is one of the greenest home designs available. But even a traditionally-built home can benefit from Passive features, such as passive windows and renewable energy sources. Check out the infographic below to learn more about Passivhaus design, energy gains, and the many benefits of going green in this direction. By the end, the only question you’ll have will be: Why aren’t all houses built this way?
