‘Passive home design’ is all about maintaining a comfortable temperature range in a home, taking advantage of the climate to reduce the need for additional heating or cooling, creating comfortable living whilst saving money and decreasing carbon emissions.
Good passive design means that your home is designed according to it’s particular climate, effectively ‘locking in’ thermal comfort to produce low heating and cooling bills, whilst reducing greenhouse gas emissions for the life span of your home.
Our experts in residential extensions, Penshurst say that orientation is key when considering a passive home design. As natural sources of heating and cooling such as solar warmth and cooling breezes are used in a passive design, the correct orientation of your building is key minimizing unwanted heat gain and loss. ie. in most areas of Australia, excluding tropical climates living areas would ideally face North.
