As the focus on building energy performance continues to grow in many jurisdictions across North America, the interest in the Passive House standard is growing as well. For the uninitiated, this standard can seem daunting, especially when it comes to incorporating manufactured components, such as windows. But window configuration and calculations in Passive House projects don’t have to be overwhelming. This presentation explores the Passive House strategy for windows, providing a high-level overview of the building science behind the standard, how the standard is measured and validated in real-world projects, as well as the benefits of Passive House windows for occupants. Through a review of window materials and configurations, this presentation outlines options for meeting the Passive House standard, as well as opportunities to cost-optimize high-performance fenestration.
