Passivhaus Series: 3. Building Services for Passivhaus
January 26 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm
Event three of our series of four half-day Passivhaus events held in conjunction with AECB CarbonLite.
What Building Services are necessary for a Passivhaus? This half day session explores the different services required in true low energy buildings. In these buildings, the heat requirement is usually smaller than the other loads such as hot water, and one of the reasons for this, after the fabric first approach, is the adoption of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery (MVHR) systems.
The second part of the session looks at how the choice of fuel for heating and hot water system can be different from conventional buildings: The Passivhaus requirement for heating systems is to produce a continuous trickle of heat, rather than a conventional system switched on and off by a time switch.
