Passive House is gaining a lot of momentum, but why is it important? And why aren’t there more PHI certified products? And why is Peter wearing a suit? These are all very good questions!

In the fifth instalment in our new video series, we explore a variety of topics relating to Passive House and answer a number of common questions:

– Can Passive House buildings be beautiful?
– What is the history of Passive House?
– What is the difference between Passive House certified products and projects?
– Is Passive House different from conventional high-performance buildings?
– Does Passive House consider Embodied Impacts (EI) of building materials?
– Does GlasCurtain have experience with Passive House projects?
– Does GlasCurtain have Passive House certified products?
– What is the future of Passive House?

You can watch (and rewatch) this in-depth 18-minute video now on YouTube and Vimeo.

Previous episodes in the series cover such topics as Embodied Carbon“Combustibility,” and Installation Partner FAQ, all of which are available on our Channel Homepage.

You can also learn more about ThermPH+ (now Thermaframe 9 PH), the world’s first and only Passive House Institute (PHI) certified curtain wall system for Cold Climates (0.60 W/m2K – R9.5) in our blog post here.
