Passive House or Passivhaus is a precisely engineered and detailed structure that is highly insulated, cold bridge free and requires less energy demand for space heating and cooling. The construction is very quick as erection of the whole structure takes a matter of days. With less concrete and heavy steel members, its carbon footprint is far lower. With prefabrication in an offsite workshop, material wastage is far less.
Building a Passive House does not cost extra in the long term as there is no need to install a complex heating and cooling system. Finances saved are invested into essential Passive House Elements, the cost of which is quickly recouped within a few years of building completion.
