Passive houses are characterised by their high energy efficiency, cost-effectiveness and environmental friendliness. Instead of heating, energy sources from within the house are used:the body heat of the occupants, penetrating heat from the sun, but also heat that is generated while cooking or taking a shower – all these heat sources are used for internal heat production.
