While you are, of course, free to show off whatever parts of your building you consider most interesting, we have a checklist of features that make Passive Houses especially fascinating:

  • Ventilation system: How does the air get into the building? How does the system work? How are your rooms ventilated?
  • Windows: What makes your Passive House windows special? How often do you open them (e.g. night ventilation)?
  • Shading: How does shading work for your building? Did you make any specific adjustments to optimise shading?
  • Temperature: How is the room temperature inside? Do you have a thermometer to show us?
  • Thermal envelope: How did you insulate your building? Did you use any interesting materials or building techniques to achieve a low energy demand and high thermal comfort?
  • Thermal bridges: What was your strategy for minimizing thermal bridges?
  • Personal experience: What has your experience of living in a Passive House been? What is your ┬áin your Passive House, what do you love most about it? Can you provide us with some anecdotes?
