Event Notes:

Topic:  Continuous Ventilation for Optimum Building Design - the Passive House Way
Passive House is a green building standard focused on energy performance and indoor air quality. The goal is to build a tight building enclosure with plenty of fresh, filtered, tempered air. We'll cover the health and comfort benefits of mechanical ventilation, and share energy analyses for local retrofits, comparing the energy consequences of ventilation choices including supply or exhaust, balanced ventilation with heat recovery, and night cooling.
