About Passive House
Passive House (PH) standard construction began in the Early 1990's in Darmstadt, Germany, with the main focus being high energy performance, thermal comfort, and healthy indoor air. Passive buildings reduce their energy consumption by around 80%, and the building longevity is extended to more than 90 years.
Eco Supply represents a number of manufacturers that carry materials and components that are suitable for Passive House construction; vapor open and air tight tapes, high-performance windows and doors, and rain screen systems with thermally broken connectors.
The range of projects we have worked on in the past years has left us with plenty of experience with high-performance construction and Passive House building practices. We now apply this standard principle in all our installation jobs.
