We’ll tell you everything you need to know so you can discover a new way to live thanks to VIVO SUSTAINABLE HOMES. What’s more, if you want to know more about the very concept of a passive house or Passivhaus, you can find out here just what a Passivhaus is.
Energy savings in a Passivhaus
Without a doubt, this is one of the basic foundations of passive houses. Thanks to thermal insulation, we can achieve constant thermal conditions inside the building that have nothing to do with the heat or cold outside. The main concept is based on always keeping the same temperature, as well as maintaining healthy and stable levels of humidity. As we can see, thanks to this indoor micro-climate being created, we don’t have to use electrical appliances to help stabilise the indoor temperature, meaning energy savings of up to 70%.
Quality of air and quality of life
Air infiltrations or unwanted draughts are reduced to a minimum, so the indoor air quality of the home is perfect, in conditions that are maintained thanks to stabilised temperature and humidity. The PASSIVHAUS concept takes special care of the home’s air-tightness, so all kinds of outdoor factors, whether it be rain, wind or any kind of atmospheric phenomenon, have no negative effect on the home. Furthermore, thanks to this air-tightness we can enjoy the peace and comfort we want, since outside noise is also kept out. Sounds good, doesn’t it?
Your health matters
Your health matters, which is why this kind of building takes great care of your comfort, rest and a new way of living. And it’s not only about living in a building with an ideal temperature, but also about reducing levels of dust inside the house, lowering annoying noise and doing away with ventilation or heating that may be harmful to your health. A commitment to a passive house is a commitment to your health.
Help the environment and climate change
In addition to everything mentioned above, the PASSIVHAUS standards take into account care for the environment thanks to energy savings and the use of high-quality materials that don’t harm the planet. Moreover, the use of renewable energies (mainly solar power) will significantly help in this regard.
PASSIVHAUS’ durability and profitability
Thanks to the care and meticulousness of buildings with a PASSIVHAUS certificate, the materials used are top quality. That is why we’re talking about buildings that last over time. What’s more, we cannot forget that this type of construction is being used more and more, so we will be raising what our house is worth as of the first minute of making the investment. Durability and profitability, pure and simple.
These are just some of the benefits that passive houses can offer. In Vivo Sustainable Homes, we want the best for you and your loved ones, so don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you need to know more about this concept.
