Documents and Reports
To be a Certified Passive House a building needs to meet the following main criteria:
- Space Heat Demand max. 15 kWh/m2a OR Heating load max. 10 W/m2
- Pressurization Test Result at 50 Pa max. 0.6 ACH (both over-pressure and under-pressure)
- Total Primary Energy Demand max. 120 kWh/m2a
All heating and cooling calculations are based on the net usable floor area of the building. If cooling (air conditioning) is required, the annual cooling energy demand must also not exceed 15 kWh/m2.
