Passive House + Renewables
You Can Live and Work in a Space that Helps the Planet
Lindsay studied the science of Passive House so she can create higher ceilings and larger windows with smaller mechanical systems, better air quality, and superior comfort.
While we always love nature, for some pollen season can take the fun out of being outdoors. Now with Passive House, being inside can provide the same fresh air you find outside but without the pollen and other micro organisms normally found in the air we breath.
Step inside on a sweltering humid day and you'll exhale in a fresh dehumidified space that's fossil-fuel free and barely using any energy. You'll wake up in winter without chapped lips and a dry nose and you'll sit comfortably at a window without a radiator. If you're allergic to pollen, you won't suffer inside.
Yes! If you have through-wall ac units, then you can upgrade to a better mechanical equipment solution. If you're replacing windows, how they're installed makes a big difference. If you are changing the inside of any exterior wall, new insulation can keep your space cooler during the summer.
Lindsay studied the science so she can design buildings with spaces that have higher ceilings, larger windows, smaller mechanical systems, better air quality and superior comfort. She wants to help her clients be more resilient to power outages and to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. Passive House standards are the path to net-zero buildings.
By researching best humidity control for hot humid climates, Lindsay found energy recovery ventilation that was developed in Europe for Passive House Buildings. To bring her clients a superior living experience, Lindsay now recommends Passive House construction and she participates in the vibrant community which is growing rapidly in North America.
Americans built solar houses in the 1960s that were warm in winter but hard to keep cool otherwise. German physicists came to study and perfect them with insulated air-tight exteriors, interior air quality systems, and a no fossil fuel philosophy. They built their own townhouses as proof of concept for comfortable buildings that don't contribute to climate change and they've stood the test of time for over 30 years. Now Passive House standards are the path to net-zero buildings around the world.
