International Passive House Days 2016

​As a Passive House resident you will enjoy a comfortable interior climate - warmth and cosiness in winter as well as a pleasant chill in summer - without requiring any conventional heating system as the house will mostly heat up and cool down in a passive way.

Last year, almost 700 Passive House buildings in over 30 countries opened their doors to introduce the public to the future of energy-efficient housing.​

The Passive House days give you the opportunity to see for yourself that the Passive House offers you first-class living environment and does not require complicated technology.

Verifiable better indoor air quality and permanently affordable energy costs - these are the advantages for the building owner or the investor. Protecting the environment is more or less incidentally guaranteed. With the Passive House standard the energy turnaround is affordable for everyone.
