Passive House Revolution: Reduce Your Energy Use by up to 80%!
In this timely film you will meet and witness the work of some of the leading builders and architects in this field. This includes Wolfgang Feist, the creator of the Passive House standard, and Katrin Klingenberg, who first brought passive house to the United States from Germany.
You will see homes across North America being retrofitted to this amazing energy efficient standard, and what satisfied owners think afterwards. Imagine living in a cold climate and not even requiring a furnace to stay toasty warm? This film shows you how!
Buildings use nearly 50% of the energy in North America. Thankfully we can start to address our energy costs and CO2 emissions with technology and methods that are available today, and the information in the Passive House Revolution leads the way. The more who know about and implement these techniques, the more difference we can make!
