Passive House in Different Climates. The Path to Net Zero   This book introduces the seven Passive House principles, to help create super-insulated, airtight buildings that require minimal energy use to heat, cool, dehumidify, and ventilate, providing good levels of indoor air quality and year-round comfort.
