Heating, cooling & dhw in passivhaus buildings & EECN

Start date: 09/05/2022
Final date: 20/05/2022

An efficient thermal envelope combined with effective shading devices in the summer mean heating and cooling loads for Passivhaus buildings are super low in comparison to conventional buildings. OK, but…what’s the best heating system for a Passivhaus building? What are the key points for designing an efficient hot water system? What are the options for active cooling in high-performance buildings? What do I need to look out for when it comes to wood-burning stoves?

Whether you are a certified Passivhaus Designer / Tradesperson looking for a refresher course, or new to the field of heating and cooling in high-performance buildings, this course will help you understand the pros and cons of the different systems available and the particularities of thermal energy generation and distribution in Passivhaus buildings.
