Expert Passive House Builders in Melbourne
Passive House is a set of building principles based on building science. Homes built in this way are Super Energy Efficient, maintain an even temperature throughout the home from the bathroom to the Living room while providing an internal air environment that is fresher than Mother Nature. A Passive House is up to 7-9 times more energy efficient than a normal 6-star Australian home.
Home heating and cooling accounts for up to 50% of world energy use so a passive house will make a big impact here.
A Passive House builder has to pass the Passive House Tradesperson exam to understand the techniques to build a Passive Home successfully.
How Our Passive House Builders Make the Indoors Comfortable?Our passive house builders implement certain technologies to make your home environment pleasant. This includes
InsulationThe thermal barrier is very important and achieved by the installation of insulation in a continuous manner. Insulation has to be installed properly and the R values are determined by the OPHPP report. Limiting thermal bridging is also very important for the home to be able to maintain its temperatures and efficiency.
Passive WindowsInstallation of passive windows is a very important part of Passive principles builds. uPVC double and triple glazed windows minimise thermal bridging unlike windows made of aluminium.
Mechanical Ventilation SystemsMHRV systems recover up to 95% of the energy from stale out going air and transfer it to incoming fresh air and is a major factor in the efficiency. Air is filtered to take out impurities so providing clean and fresh air inside your house.
Implementing Airtightness in Your Home
To keep the temperature inside your home optimal, the professionals creating passive house buildings in Melbourne apply airtight envelopes to the building.
An external WRB membrane and an internal airtightness membrane are used and all penetrations are taped and sealed to ensure no air leakage. This is a major part of passive house principles builds. No leakage means massive gains in energy efficiency and a comfortable stable temperature all round.
