The Passive House concept is founded on five basic principles for good design.
- Thermal Insulation
- Thermal Bridge Free Design
- Ventilation and Heat Recovery
- Passive House Windows
These five simple ideas, properly applied in a well constructed dwelling, facilitate a dramatic reduction in the energy required for space heating. This is achieved by maximising solar gains and harvesting waste heat, whilst minimising all mechanisms of heat loss from the envelope.
These are by no means new ideas, but todays increasing focus on both housing quality and energy consciousness serves to reiterate their importance.
With innovative solutions to simplify reducing air leakage rates and control cold bridging, the Proctor Passive range of solutions allows specifiers to adhere to these guiding principles without compromising in other areas. This ensures the delivery of best practice performance with the least impact on costs and timescales.
