What is Passive House?
 
04:30
We have been talking about the Passive House concept for a while now, yet the majority of people don’t know what a Passive House means. What is Passive House? Let me give you an example: You are probably aware of the term “Passive Income”. You know that it is the type of income that you generate while doing little or no work. This income requires some work at the beginning (set up) and minimal maintenance. Subsequently, you get to focus on other life activities while the money rolls in. Well, the Passive House concept is similar to that. You get to build a home that works for you and not against you. Watch the video or listen to the Podcast to understand more about how it works.

Casey’s Rant About Designers: Why You Need an Integrated Design Process

Ultimately, these are homes that are cheaper to operate, better for the environment, more comfortable to live in and, most importantly, healthier for the families who live in them. Collaboration leads to innovation Film and edit by Veronica Druta Integrated Design Process - http://www.nrcan.gc.ca/energy/efficiency/buildings/eenb/integrated-design-process/4047 "An integrated design process (IDP) involves a holistic approach to high performance building design and construction. It relies upon every member of the project team sharing a vision of sustainability, and working collaboratively to implement sustainability goals. This process enables the team to optimize systems, reduce operating and maintenance costs and minimize the need for incremental capital. IDP has been shown to produce more significant results than investing in capital equipment upgrades at later stages" How much does it cost to renovate? - http://www.theconsciousbuilder.com/cost-renovate/ How much it cost to build a custom home? - http://www.theconsciousbuilder.com/cost-build-custom-home/ For enquiries contact us directly at 613-693-0914 or email us at [email protected] Website: htpps://www.theconsciousbuilder.com/ The Conscious Builder Podcast: Building with Natural Building Products: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/42-building-natural-products-sustainable-building-chris/id1188092758?i=1000414931664&mt=2 Facebook https://www.facebook.com/theconsciousbuilder Twitter https://twitter.com/buildconscious Instagram https://www.instagram.com/the_conscious_builder/ Do you have a question we can answer?
