The House « Passive House in the Woods #green - Gold Standard in Energy Efficiency #CA #NV #WI #WA Beyond Net Zero

Exterior walls, windows, doors, slab, and roof designed according to Passive House principles can radically reduce the amount of energy used to condition a building. The exterior wall assembly of the Passive House in the Woods consists of 11” Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) for structure, and an 11” Exterior Insulation and Finish System (EIFS) facade with an overall R-value of 70. Windows and doors are Passive House certified, come with high solar heat gain (64%), triple pane low-E coated glazings, as well as insulated frames for installed R-values of 8. The slab sits on 12” of extruded polystyrene insulation with an R-value of 60. The flat roof utilizes an average of 14” of polyisocyanurate insulation with an R-value of 95.
