Passive homes aim to save 90% of the power used by conventionally built homes while improving air quality and reducing noise and operating costs. The long-lasting construction of passive homes matches the investment in renewable energy.
1. The temperature inside is always the same
The Passive House gives stability to the temperature of the whole house, every hour and every day.
They reduce heat losses in winter and prevent heat inputs in summer, thus establishing the ideal temperature throughout the house.
2. The home is more comfortable
The insulation implanted in the home allows all the rooms to have the same temperature and is also within the comfort parameters. This happens because cold spots are avoided that produce the habitual energetic escapes of the houses.
3. Reduce heating expense
The great thermal insulation implanted in the passive houses and the last generation windows, avoid any change of temperature in the interior, so it will not be necessary to produce almost heating. In addition, the little heating or artificial ventilation that may be needed, is produced with very efficient systems.
4. Solar orientation
When the building or the house is new construction, the orientation will adapt to the sun, to make the most of all the solar benefits and natural light, also avoiding summer overheating.
5. Eliminate CO2 emissions
By consuming no fossil fuels for home energy in a BEESPOT, the emission of CO2 is zero thus eliminating polluting that cause climate change.
6. Great acoustic insulation
The windows used in a passive house, are triple glazed and double air chamber, so not only serves as thermal insulation but also make acoustic insulation, allowing outside noise to become virtually imperceptible.
7. More efficient ventilation
The installation of a ventilation system produces a totally controlled air circulation, without currents or temperature changes, creating a pleasant sensation of comfort. The extracted air heats the new air in a very efficient way.
8. Gain in health
The filtered air avoids the presence of dust and pollen, which reduces the allergic reactions and the cleaning of the indoor dust. In addition, the low concentration of CO2 and volatile organic compounds reduces the feeling of fatigue and other ailments.
9. Very good amortization
The additional cost of a new passive house on the overall price of the work, is exchanged for a lifetime of energy saving, unparalleled thermal comfort and a drastic reduction of emissions throughout the life of the building.
