With our own team Passivhaus qualified architect, will work with clients to improve the energy efficiency of their home up to EnerPHit standard if requested,
EnerPHit certification has the following requirements:
- Less than 25 kWh/(m²a) (about 7.9 kBtu/sf/yr) for heating and cooling
- Air tightness better than 1 ACH @ 50 Pa
- Total energy useage ≤ 120 kWh/m2/year (38.1 kBtu/sf/yr)
What does that mean? An EnerPHit home will be 4-6 times more energy efficient than a conventionally built new home. Because the standard is for existing housing stock, it’s entirely possible that a remodeled home will perform at 10X its previous efficiency.
or can design and new build up to the Passivhaus requirements (which though currently 10 x the energy efficiency of the new 2010 Part L, is possibly likely to become the energy standard for homes by 2018).
