Did You Know? – What is the average star rating of a Passive House?

It is impossible to compare the star rating to Passive House analysis – it is like comparing a pair of roller skates with a Mercedes Benz.

Although Passive House and the star rating both assess the overall energy consumption of the building; Passive House analysis is more accurate, realistic, and specific about energy performance whilst creating a consistent, healthy, and comfortable indoor air environment. The star rating is a basic tool that doesn’t actually measure any indoor temperature or ventilation. Our award-winning Donvale project achieved 7.8 stars yet is an ultra-energy efficient Passive House performing home.

PHPP (Passive House Planning Package) analyses the performance of the building; and the blower door test confirms the result. At CarbonLite, we will test and prove building performance twice to guarantee your home is comfortable and healthy all year round.
