Passive House Final Tour Ann Arbor, MI
Event Description

The Visible Green Home® Tour is very excited to present a new event seriesPHIUS+2015 Passive House. This new home construction project in Ann Arbor is the first in the State to meet the Passive House Institute of the United States PHIUS+2015 certification requirements. A Passive House is a home that has been conceived, designed, sited and constructed to use 80%-90% less energy than a conventionally built home. This home will be so energy efficient that by employing an advanced building envelope, internal sources of energy gain and harnessing free energy from the sun, it will eliminate the need for a conventional furnace… altogether. Imagine the buildings of the future- right now!
