Passive house in Lääne-Virumaa

Passive house in Lääne-Virumaa

Two very energy efficient houses in Lääne-Virumaa. The first one is designed and manufactured as a passive house and the neighbouring house as a nearly passive house (due to it being smaller).

Both of these houses exhibit very good air-tightnes. The blower-door test showed a result of n50 = 0,22 h 1/h for the passive house and n50 = 0,42 h 1/h for the smaller building.

These houss are an example of rural design in Estonia with more traditional looks and a pitched roof. Thus the houses are a good example of how energy efficient buildings can have very different design.
