Passive house is a voluntary standard for energy efficiency in a building, which reduces the building’s ecological footprint. Passive house as a standard is very popular in many European countries where temperatures fluctuate and where there is a focus on minimising energy consumption and sustainable living.
In Australia we have a long way to go when it comes to achieving passive house standards and there is no doubt that Enertec’s uPVC windows and doors will be a significant contributor towards achieving this standard.
We know well that the summer conditions in Australia are very different to Europe. In particular, the insulation and glazing systems need to be uniquely specified to cope with both Summer and Winter conditions, to maintain year round comfort with low energy requirements.
