BatiActu : results regarding a passive house
Find above a link on a post about results obtained in a passive house. Those results are :
- no heating problems in winter, results are also matching simulations
- over-heating in mid-season due to lack of effective management by household
- bad surprise regarding electric consumption due to lights
It indicates clearly that, once isolation target and enegy performance is reached, people habits and lack of home automation ( blinds, lights, … ) are the limiting factors in houses. Home automation really makes sense then.
