The Passivhaus Trust provides guidance about how to build homes that offer significant comfort, build with impressive amounts of attention to the finest detail. The design is rigorous, complementing construction practices that have been developed by Germany’s well-respected Passivhaus Institute.

More and more people are building to Passivhaus standards and saving a great deal of money on energy as well as enjoying a healthier internal ‘climate’. So can you include MVHR in Passivhaus builds?
