Health

Health and comfort go hand in hand. In the long run we can’t have one without the other.  A Passive House optimizes both so you and your family can be both healthy and comfortable.

The warm windows that make an ideal sitting or play area on a cold or wet (or hot) day also minimize the health issues related to mould and mildew.  A warm window is a dry window.

A healthy home also keeps moisture from getting into the structure. This prevents moulds from forming and protects the structure from rot. Many insects are also attracted to moist environments as they need water to survive.

A healthy home has high air quality everywhere in the home. In a modern well sealed house this means that the house must be mechanically ventilated.
