WHAT IS A PASSIVE HOUSE?
A home that is just as good for the environment as it is for your health is an essential way of living in the 21st century.
It is something that we here at Pure Haus strongly believe in, as we are dedicated to building homes with remarkable thermal performance, brilliant visuals, and acoustic comforts.
A Purehaus owner can expect the highest standard of air quality, coupled with an exceptional energy performance – so remarkable that it will change people’s thoughts about traditional houses forever.
Understand Passive House in 90 seconds
ECO-FRIENDLY & SUSTAINABLE
The first step towards a sustainable home is achieving Passivehaus standards. This is all made possible with an airtight construction, excellent thermal performance, orientation towards the sun, minimal thermal bridges, in addition to the use of a MVHR (Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery) system.
With the combination of the above, owners can experience comfortable room temperatures 24-7 regardless of the time of year. Removing the need for an expensive heating system, reducing energy costs, and keeping draughts to an absolute minimum.
QUIET & CALMING
Crisp, clean sound can be enjoyed throughout the home without the interruption of the outside world, which also ensures that neighbouring properties won’t be disturbed by any noise from inside your home.
NATURAL LIGHT & AIR
Large, triple glazed windows allow you to remain connected with the world outside.
Giving you the chance to experience sheer revitalisation each morning as natural light begins to flood into the family home.
With clean, actively filtered fresh air circulating throughout the home, polluted air and stuffy rooms will soon become a thing of the past – ensuring the whole family feels awake, alert, and energised throughout the day.
