Passivhaus News

Summer overheating can be a potential problem in all modern buildings because of our preference for much more glazing than in former times. Passivhaus is better at addressing this than any other method because it takes account of solar gain and shading as standard within its calculation methodology, and alerts the designer to any potential overheating, enabling it to be eliminated at design stage. For maximum performance the glazing and shading specification should be fine-tuned on each façade of a Passivhaus building. Any problems with a specific project might be site-specific or could be due to incorrect use of the shading.
