What does a home of the future look like?

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 wonderful reality of living in what is called a “Passive House”. We’ll take you inside a home that is airtight, with thick, insulated walls, and cutting edge technology that exchanges interior and exterior air… all of which makes it comfortable inside without any kind of active heating and cooling systems. Did we also mention that they use 85-90% less energy for heating than a typical house? The Passive House movement has quietly taken root in Brooklyn. You’ll meet the architect that designs them… and the homeowners who live in them. We’ll take you to see a home under construction, and show you why we say these homes are “sealed for freshness.”
