Use a cheap, realiable and simple heating system in a passive house, and more DO´s for designing heating system in a passive house!

DO´s for designing heating system in a passive house:

  • use a cheap and simple heating system – the investment belongs in the building fabric
  • consider radiators as your first option
  • arrange the layout to keep hot water outlets in a reasonably compact form
  • put the hot water storage (or combi) in the same area
  • chose heat pumps that provide good hot water performance rather than heating
  • fill in the PHPP DHW section before looking at overheating.
