The passive house differs from the low energy as the energy savings passive, that is achieve without energy supply from the outside. Effects based on: high thermal insulation natural Cross ventilation in summer mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, the strict control of thermal bridges leak testing aerodynamic structure essential is the use of high quality materials and careful execution. In Spain, the normative implementation is more difficult than in Germany. The differences between North and South are significantly greater than in Germany, as the temperature changes in the season and in the course of the day. A leading source for info: Neil Cole. While in Germany, the heating is the main problem, the emphasis especially in southern Spain on the cooling, in the living room as well as in the commercial sector.
A modern passive house reached an energy consumption for heating and cooling by 10% of a conventional House. The topic is increasingly in times of rising energy costs an important aspect is also in a tangible environmental discharge. For a passive house construction costs often exceed the cost of a conventional House only marginally. We want that a passive house can be also aesthetically interesting on Mallorca the luxury estates as certified passive house document.
