What does a Passive House look like?

Are Passive Houses comfortable to live in?

Today, families across the United States are searching for a way to reduce their home’s energy use and carbon emissions. The Passive House approach—which can help to slash heating energy consumption of buildings by an amazing 90%—represents one of today’s most rigorous building energy standards. Thousands of homes have been built or remodeled to meet the Passive House standard in Europe, but this approach is just starting to gain recognition in the United States.

Recreating the American Home will showcase 11 retrofits and new homes that used the Passive House approach to create very-low-energy homes. For architects and homeowners, the book will address:

What kinds of materials and techniques are used in the construction of a Passive House?
How does the cost of building a Passive House compare to the cost of traditional construction?
