WELCOME TO PASSIVHAUS HOMES

 

At Passivhaus Homes we have a Fabric First Policy – by optimising the building fabric, you achieve reliable and lasting energy performance and comfort.

The PH15 System is a timber framed construction solution, designed to simplify all the technical aspects of building up to the Passivhaus energy efficiency standard, ensuring your home will be comfortable, healthy and robust.


In the UK we continue to construct our new houses from bricks and blocks, with minimum insulation, lots of thermal bridges and air leakiness. The result is houses that continue to be expensive to heat and suffer from condensation and poor internal air quality which impacts on our health. The PH15 System offers an alternative construction method to address all these problems, and we hope it will contribute to a change for the better in UK building practice. Timber frame solutions like this are common in Nordic countries or in Canada or the US, where the self build market contributes over 50% of new houses built. We would like to see this change in the UK, away from the big developers, see more social housing, and much better quality housing. PH15 delivers very energy-efficient homes, that eradicate cold spots, condensation and mould. This means low bills, a  very comfortable internal environment and healthy indoor air quality.
