Passive house (ger. Passivhaus) – a construction which does not need the additional source of energy from the outside for heating or cooling and has low power consumption.
Amount of energy that is used for heating of one square meter of living space does not exceed 10W per year.
The architectural concept of the house is based on such principles as compactness, effective quality insulation, absence of cold joints in materials and connection units, correct geometry of a building, zoning, compass orientation. As a result passive houses are sustainable, comfortable and affordable.
PassivDom can produce sufficient energy for heating and work of all engineering systems, household appliances. That is why there is no need to burn fuel, and so there are no harmful emissions into the atmosphere. Zero level of carbon emissions makes the house absolutely ecological.
All materials are compliant with European regulations – we use only certified materials. All components are nature safe and easy to recycle.
The frame of the house is made of carbon, the material that is 6 times stronger than steel. All modules production are used only non-corrosive materials. We do not use wood, steel, mineral wool, polystyrene, SIP-panels. Due to the absence of corrosive materials the modules’ life cycle is more than 40 years.
