PASSIVE HOUSES

Benefits                                   

How is it like to live in
a Passive House?

For all of us, thermal comfort is a determining factor when choosing our home.
And this is precisely the main idea on which the concept of Passive House is based.

Living in a Passive House is to enjoy an exceptional thermal comfort in a house
that stays warm during winter and cool during summer.

And, what is more:

No draughts

No cold areas

No abrupt changes in temperature between rooms

No noisy and expensive heating and air conditioning systems

Discover how the day-to-day life is like in a Passive House

Imagine living in a house that keeps a comfortable temperature all year
round reducing energy consumption to nearly zero.

A house that is able to use the residual energy released by a hair dryer, a TV, a light
bulb or any other small electrical household appliance to heat the whole house a few degrees.

A house that is even able to take advantage of the heat given off by the body of 4 of its inhabitants to warm a 20 m² room.

Magic? No. Science.

Be surprised by the comfort a Passive House offers.

Science at the service of 
HUMAN COMFORT

The Passive House standard represents the most effective application of the principles of physics to housing. The thousands of Passive Houses already in use around the world and the exponential growth of this standard today are irrefutable proof of its effectiveness.

But there is stronger evidence than that: the satisfaction of the inhabitants of this type of house and the reaction of those who visit a Passive House for the first time. There is no doubt that their comfort does not leave anyone indifferent.

This was the case of our last clients, a German couple who, after visiting some friends for a weekend at their brand-new Passive House in Germany, described to us their experience with these words:

“The house was extremely cosy and quietWithout any noise from outside. There was a sense of high quality and well-being everywhere. We could walk around the house and all the rooms had the same temperature, which was simply perfect. Neither hot nor cold. As opposed to our house, the floor’s temperature was comfortable. This really caught our attention. Our friends told us that they didn’t need to turn on the stoves they brought from their old house during winter. At first, we found this hard to believe, but everything they said turned out to be true. They showed us that the temperature of the house could be raised just by making popcorn or cooking something in the oven. We want the same, but in Mallorca”.

How will a Passive House
transform your life?

Besides providing superior comfort, Passive Houses have been
designed to 
benefit your health and your household economy because they:

Reduce the risk of colds

By avoiding drafts and sudden changes in temperature within the different areas of the house, the temperature is much more under control than in a conventional house. As a result, the risk of family members catching annoying colds is reduced.

Improve your rest

The thick walls used in Passive Houses lead to greater acoustic insulation. Passive Houses are silent houses that avoid external noises that cause stress, insomnia and irritability, which, in turn, can lead to loss of concentration, productivity or affect the mood of the inhabitants of traditional houses. Passive Houses are silent. They prevent acoustic discomfort allowing you to rest better. As a result, you and your family will feel more productive and in a better mood.

Purify the air

The ventilation system replaces traditional heating and cooling systems and ensures constant air renewal. This is achieved by expelling the CO2 generated by the inhabitants of the house and reducing dust, mites, pollen and other harmful particles by means of filters. The result is pure and clean air circulating throughout the house which will increase the comfort for everyone, especially for those members of the family who suffer from allergies or respiratory problems.

Save time

There is the possibility of considerably reducing the construction time of your Passive House if, instead of building it in the conventional way, you opt for a structure and a thermal envelope of wood that arrive at the construction site already finished. The latter option is the one preferred by our clients, as it reduces the construction time from 12-14 months (which is the average time it takes to build a house using conventional methods) to a much shorter period of time which ranges between 6 and 8 months.

Save money

In the long term, a Passive House saves you money by reducing your house’s heating and cooling needs by 90 %. For example, the average consumption for a standard house of 200 m² is approximately 3,000 € per year. However, the consumption would decrease dramatically to only around 300€ in a Passive House. This means saving 2,700€ yearly in bills.

Prevents damp and house mould

Conventional houses often have dampness or mould problems due to insufficient ventilation or the presence of thermal bridges. The tightness of the structure of Passive Houses prevents condensation and keeps away the feared mould. In addition, it keeps the humidity of the house at an optimal level to protect the health of its inhabitants.
