PHIUS Passive House Certified Home Builder
Serving homeowners in Western CT and Westchester NY
The promise of a “Passive House” or “Passivhaus“ is a beautiful home that uses only 10% of the energy of a conventional home yet rewards you with incredibly fresh indoor air quality. And in Connecticut and New York, a home using only 10% of the energy of a conventional home will provide you tremendous savings year after year.
PHIUS Trained and Certified Professionals
All senior members of BPC Green Builders have completed the Passive House PHIUS Consultant and/or the Passive House PHIUS Home Builder training program. Our staff has members certified by the Passive House Institute US as PHIUS Certified Passive House Consultants and PHIUS Certified Passive House Builders. Passive House Institute US standards are the highest Passive House standards in the USA.
What Makes a Passive House Different and Better
Incredible Energy Savings: Your new passive house will use as little as 10% of the energy a conventional home uses. This means you can save 90% of what you would otherwise pay.
Totally Integrated Home Envelope: A Passive House is constructed so that the building envelope – the insulation, walls, windows, doors, etc. – are so well integrated that the home interior is virtually airtight.
Exceptionally Fresh Air and Comfort: Passive homes are carefully engineered and so well-ventilated that a constant supply of fresh air flows throughout the home. Your new home will be balanced for temperature and humidity.
Super Energy Efficient and High Performance: Heating is supplied largely by passive solar energy. This is combined with a Passive House’s ability to capture heat generated by people, electrical equipment in the home, and other passive sources of energy. Cooling is accomplished by similarly passive methods, including window orientation and shading.
