Passive houses or Passivhaus are increasingly in demand. Society is increasingly concerned about its health and the environment, and the elimination or reduction of the use of materials that directly affect climate change. That is why Passivhaus buildings are used more, due to their high energy efficiency.
The advantages of building a Passivhaus home are as follows:
Passivhaus have high thermal insulation that keeps the average temperature throughout the year. Thus, the weather conditions outside do not affect the home and this directly influences energy consumption. Thanks to the enclosure, the cold and heat are filtered much less, so that the heating consumption drops by up to 75%.
The ventilation of closed spaces has become one of the greatest concerns of society, the advantage of mechanical ventilation in passive houses is in high demand. This is a mechanism that consists of a network of ducts through which the air circulates through the house, offering continuous air renewal. In short, a ventilation system that cleans, purifies and preheats the air that enters from outside.
Passive houses or Passivhaus are made with thermal and acoustic insulating wooden windows, as well as doors with high performance. Wood is a natural insulator that, together with the glass of the windows of this type of house, makes the enclosures of high quality. In addition, these types of materials are beneficial for the health and well-being of its inhabitants.
