How to Build a House That Uses 90% Less Energy!

Matt walks us through Passive House, which is a high-performance building standard developed to reduce building-related emissions. These buildings are super-insulated (continuous, continuous, continuous!), have little to no thermal bridges, well-insulated windows, are airtight, utilize an HRV/ERV, and have minimal conditioning systems. They are not only energy-efficient, but crazy comfortable and healthy! Is there a better way to build? Check out these links below as a good starting point for learning more about this standard.
