Kāinga Ora Passive Houses

17 September 2021

Passive House is a performance based standard that is first and foremost about delivering on a promise: a comfortable, well-ventilated home that needs very little energy.

These homes regulate their own temperature through smart design, the use of high performing construction materials, and a mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery.

For our customers, living in a Passive House means more affordable heating, fresh indoor air quality and comfortable and healthy temperatures year-round. Environmentally, it means we’re delivering high performing homes with significantly reduced operational carbon emissions.
