DON`Ts for designing an HVAC system in a passive house!

DON`Ts for designing an HVAC system in a passive house!

Heat via the air supply, expensive heating systems and other DON´Ts when designing and building a passive house:

  • think you have to heat via the air supply
  • get carried away with expensive heating systems – they won’t be used enough to be worth it
  • expect to just use direct electric for space and water heating and stay within the Passivhaus primary energy limit
  • expect that the mechanical ventilation with heat recovery (MVHR) will distribute heat from a heated room to an unheated room – it won’t
