Passive Houses (or Passivhaus) are energy-efficient, ecological constructions known for being extremely comfortable for their inhabitants
Passive Houses are environmentally responsive homes. Their energy-efficient design reduces the ecological footprint to a minimum. In Casal Mallorquí, we use the Passive House model to align with our values for a sustainable lifestyle while respecting our environment.
Thanks to the construction systems we use, we can achieve the highest energy efficiency and comfort. This is largely due to the type of insulation, its density and continuity throughout the enclosure. It is also essential to detect bridges or thermal leaks in the project phase and, subsequently, minimise them according to construction details.
The mechanical ventilation system in Passive Houses are also a key factor in maintaining the right temperature throughout all seasons. It also creates a source of fresh, pure air inside the home. This system, combined with the use of natural energy sources such as sunlight, reduces energy consumption to a minimum, making the need for additional energy practically non-existent.
Last but not least, we must consider the natural and higher quality materials used when constructing these types of buildings if compared to traditional homes.
If you are looking to adapt your home to its natural environment whilst living in a healthy, sustainable and comfortable space, Passive Houses are the best option.
