A passive home is an extremely comfortable, healthy, economical, and sustainable home, designed and constructed to use up to 90% less energy than a traditional home. What’s more, these efficiency gains aren’t due to some constrained design approach. Passive homes are elegant, comfortable living spaces that can be designed to meet your lifestyle, aesthetic tastes, and stylistic preferences.
