"Passivhaus" is a passive house, but construction criteria is entrusted to a design "concept" quantitative . It had been developing in Germany by the Research Institute PHI Passivhaus Institut since 1988.
Today thousands of houses, administrative and commercial buildings, schools , churches and supermarkets throughout the world are Passivhaus certified. The results are amazing and the experiences have been validating living comfort and really reducing energy consumption by 10 times lower than conventional buildings.
Please get in touch to know what you need to do to make buildings or renovations with the protocol of Certification of Passivhaus within your administration.

When you decide to build, buy or renovate a building, you always think of how best to “spend” your money. Maybe you should think about how to “ best invest ” your money to get the highest possible result in terms of value and well-being.
These choices are long-term [or a lifetime] though these are often only intuitive and emotional, and tend only to factors such as location, cost, payment terms and then forget to seriously assess whether the promise of quality , health and efficiency is truly that.
We think that the technical qualities of a building should be entrusted to a design of details and quality, in process constrcution controls and certification by an independent Institute, such as the PHI - Passiv Haus Institut.
The certification Passivhaus is voluntary and the owner obtains the guarantee of high quality of the building. The bullder investor may offer a quality-certified product by independent authority.
The certification Passivhaus points to the MAXIMUM VALUE at MINIMUM COST.

The Passivhaus aims first at the Health, the Comfort and the pleasantness of the building ambients.
The quality of the ambients is given by the synergy of factors that Passivhaus prescribes with the utmost attention and precision.
In spite of the effort of the regulations , actual residential buildings suffer from stale air, heat, cold, draughts, damp, mould or noise; unfortunately, offices, hotels or schools too.
The effects of this neglect , results in allergies, sickness, better known as SBS Sick Building Syndrome.
The Passivhaus is the solution.
In the Passivhaus, the real energy and cost savings is achieved through the extensive use of methodologies, passive, natural at zero cost.
The operating costs of the building are greatly reduced, because very little energy needs to heat or cool, and are also designed for efficient use of lighting, appliances and all household services.
The use of energy from renewable sources solar or wind or geothermal energy and allow the attainment of the classification PLUS or PREMIUM PASSIVHAUS that allows for a resetting of the energy costs as per regulations ZEB Buildings Zero Energy and goes beyond even putting at your disposal a surplus of energy available for EV electrical vehicle.
The Passivhaus is not a luxury building.
In Austria, Germany and many other countries Social Housings have been built .
The success of the Passivhaus standard is due to its cost-effectiveness compared to all other building regulations.
PHI, Passive House Institute has been paying attention to cost control, with a dedicated working group in which the experts compare experiences for studying methods of cost reduction.
In reference to buildings which comply with the requirements of the law in force, as of today, a building Passivhaus has costs same to Class A building as per Italian regulation.
In Austria , Germany and Trentino Alto Adige the building chain has already brought costs at same level with the traditional fake buildings.
If you compare the costs of Passivhaus to other building that shows little respect to regulations , the Passivhaus will cost a lot more, but you compare different concepts of quality, health and efficiency. Fortunately we are learning to know and to abandon those old and bad practice .
Currently, the investment has a ROI of about 10 years , you obtains absence of fossil fuels having only Electricity energy vector coming from solar or other renewable sources.
Unfortunately today the enviromental costs of fake efficient buildings are not quantified well and NOT comparable with Passivhaus with zero impact of CO2.
Currently in Sicily the most difficulties are the identification of the experienced project team as well as h qualified and certified construction company with adequate experiences in the using Passivhaus practises.
Fortunately, the experience of the Project Botticelli Mascalucia (CT) , first Passivhaus certified building in Sicily and other projects under constructions is contributing to the exponential growth of the experience of the building construction chain in Sicily.
