Imagine that it’s a bone-chilling 35 degrees outside, yet it’s a comfy 70 degrees inside your home...and the heat isn’t on! That’s the beauty of a “Passive House,” a home with an airtight design that uses 85-90% less energy than the typical house. Meet the architect, the homeowners, and even the furry friends who inhabit these homes and learn why they’ve made the switch.
