Make space for the ventilation unit at the start of the design process and more DO´s for a passive house!

DO´s in building services in a passive house:

  • make space for the ventilation unit at the start of the design process
  • provide routes for ducts – think of octopus tentacles not just typical section drawings
  • fill in the Ventilation worksheet before completing the PHPP
  • use a PHI certified ventilation unit
  • get a complete ductwork design before starting installation
  • use a commissioning specialist familiar with Passivhaus systems
