Areas to Look at to Achieve Passive House Certification
There are a number of areas which need close attention in order to obtain Passive House Certification
- PHPP – all Passive House designs must be verified using the specialist Passive House Planning Package;
- Construction details – achieving the required level of airtightness and thermal bridging greatly depends on appropriate details
- Right on-site - close inspection of details during the build is very important, especially regarding airtightness
- Passive House Certification – if you want to achieve Passive House Certification you must submit your documentation to an approved Authority. Your air tightness must be tested on site by a qualified independent tester and since 2019 your HVAC must be tested by a qualified tester under Part F of the Building Regulations.
