Air Tight


Airtight construction, or airtightness, refers to no unintentional gaps in the building envelope that could allow air to leak through. Having an airtight home rids cold draughts coming through the envelops – it keeps the warm air in and the cold air out.


Through the heat recovery ventilation unit (HRV), 24/7 fresh air is circulated throughout the home. These HRV units provide residents with superior indoor air quality through the use of high quality air filters. Ventilation ensures the warm air carried out by the exhaust air is not wasted but instead converted to fresh incoming air.

Heating & Cooling

Passive House buildings save 80% of heating and cooling energy compared to the typical building. Quality tilt and turn windows, super-insulated walls and ventilation ensures optimal temperatures any time of year.
