Using a range of passive design techniques, your home can be naturally heated and cooled year-round. This reduces energy consumption and lowers greenhouse gas emissions.
These factors allow us to achieve optimal passive design:
Orientating buildings to capture warming sun in winter and cooling breezes in summer
- Shading for protection
- Choosing layout decisions that optimise natural ventilation and lighting
- Thermal mass
- Creating sealed, insulated buildings for thermal and acoustic comfort
- Ensuring optimum indoor air quality through natural and/or mechanical ventilation and low toxic materials
