At Passive House Construction & Products we design and build both Passive and Energy Efficient homes as well as the supply of healthy building materials including the extensive range of Pro Clima products. Our experience in building quaility homes ensures we fully understand the necessary components needed to achieve an affordable, healthy, warm and comfortable dream home.
Multi Award Winning founder Justin O'Connor is a certified passive house specialist, with his extensive knowledge of the Passive House methodologies and its components he can guide you to the successful completion of your Passive or Energy Efficient Home through close collaboration and micro management.
A Passive House is a dwelling in which a year-round comfortable interior climate and good indoor air quality conditions can be maintained without the use of significant active space heating or cooling systems.
The concept of a Passive House is based on minimising heat losses and maximising heat gains, typically this would include optimising insulation levels with minimal thermal bridges, high performance windows, very low air-leakage through the building envelope, utilisation of passive solar, internal heat gains and good indoor air quality maintained by a mechanical ventilation system with a highly efficient energy recovery core (exchanger).
By creating a thermally efficient building envelope and making optimum use of free heat gains the space heating requirements of a Passive House are minimised, thus removing any need for a conventional heating system; the air supply system essentially suffices to distribute the remaining heat requirement. A Passive House uses up to 90% less energy than a home built to current building regulations.
The creation of a building with very low air-leakage (air-tight) and the provision of a mechanical ventilation system is the key to ensuring the required volume of fresh air needed for healthy living conditions is provided.
