Including solar passive design features in a passive house will further enhance its thermal efficiency – in some cases there will be no need for additional sources of heating or cooling. “We try to combine passive houses with traditional passive solar design,” Bernstein-Hussmann says. “We say ‘OK, so a few months of the year this house works like a traditionally well-designed, sustainable Australian home, where you leave your windows and doors open, you get good cross-ventilation through, it’s all nicely shaded. All those sort of things work beautifully.’” “But then for those months where it gets too warm or too cold, you close your windows and you get your heat recovery ventilation system running. That way you can benefit from both worlds.”See more outdoor living areas
