Introducing: "Passive House" (PassivHaus)
We are very pleased to announce that we`re in the late design stages for Kingston`s first Passive House! This will be the most energy-efficient home in the city - and one of only a handful in the country. We`ll be keeping you up to date on the construction details through our new blog - please follow the blog so you won`t miss out on tours and open-houses:
If you haven't heard of a "Passive House" before, you're certainly not alone. Canada is just now starting to catch on to this impressive standard for energy efficiency, longevity and superior indoor air quality (IAQ). A Passive House is extremely well insulated, very tight, requires great care in construction to eliminate thermal bridges, and uses only 10-20% of the energy required to heat and cool a conventional home. These attributes combined with the fact it is healthier to live in, make it a true winner.
For more information on passive homes, please Contact us. We've been trained by the Canadian Passive House institute and are very excited about helping introduce "Canada's Most Sustainable City" (Kingston) to this forward-thinking building standard. If the thought of owning Kingston's most energy efficient home intrigues you, we can help.
