The five basic principles of the Passive House (Passivhaus) are:
- Proper thermal insulation of the structure
- High quality windows
- Ventilation system with heat recovery
- Airtightness of the structure
- Lack of thermal bridges
These principles were the result of decades of research done by The Passivhaus Institut in Darmstadt, Germany, led by Dr Wolfgang Feist.
