Passive homes are designed in order to minimize energy consumption of heating and cooling.
Passive homes are designed in order to minimize energy consumption of heating and cooling. This is made possible with an air leakage tight and extra insulated cell of the building including the exterior openings such as doors and windows, keeping the interior at the desired temperature, with the only need of a purifying air ventilation system, which produces excellent interior atmosphere.
Canadian homes® team designs with a certified passive home architect.
Because wood is a non conductive material, Canadian homes® buildings have much less thermal loses. These low thermo bridges are being eliminated with an additional exterior insulation on the overall cell of the building attaining thermal insulation factors for walls and roof, as low as u = 0,08 - 0,15 w/m2 K, making it the ideal solution for the construction of passive homes and buildings.
