Windows & Shades: Key Components for Comfort & Building Efficiency
The Passive House (PH) standard is based on 5 core principles to meet the required energy targets:
1) Continuous (climate determined) insulation;
2) Thermal bridge free design;
3) High efficiency windows & shading;
4) Building envelope airtightness;
5) Continuous ventilation.
After a brief introduction to the PH standard, this workshop will focus on "Principle #3".
We will detail how window performance and shading options impact building efficiency & comfort, especially in a cooling dominant climate like Southern California.
