Introduction to Passive House Retrofits: The EnerPHit Standard

July 09, 2024

Achieving the Passive House Standard in refurbishments of existing buildings is not always a realistic goal, and for such buildings, the Passive House Institute has developed the EnerPHit standard for certified energy retrofits with Passive House Components. In this webinar, trainers from the Passive House Network will discuss how the EnerPHit standard can accommodate the realities of existing old buildings, where foundations, party lines, historic preservation, cost, and other factors make a typical Passive House certification impossible. Learn how existing structures can benefit from retrofits to move a structure from a low to high-performance building. Applying the passive house standard to existing structures has its unique challenges. Through case studies of successful retrofits, see how to upgrade a building with respect to airtightness, insulation, thermal bridge reductions, high-performance windows, and ventilation, plus learn about the EnerPHit standards and process.
