Passive House Buildings have strict standards. While many homes meet all the requirements, some also follow the guidelines but don’t get certified (we call these Darn Good Houses around here). Many homeowners and designers also work to retrofit existing builds using Passive Haus practices to help lower the energy load on an existing structure. .

Featured here is a custom front entry by Advantage Architectural Woodwork. They use European style hinges and latches with multi-point hardware for creating an airtight assembly. .
.
Not only are their doors fully customizable with different types of wood, aluminum, glass, or combinations, but also with electronic locks that contain technology such as Bluetooth, fingerprint, or RFID access. .
.
Let's discuss custom door options that aid in reaching passive house practices and or standards—reach out with questions.

We were just talking through the decision process of Alpen's 625 series and their 925 series windows with a client. One key component to consider when selecting your high-performance products is realizing inevitable energy price hikes will impact you less. High-performance windows and building envelopes are a hedge, if you will, against rising energy costs. The 625 windows will help as well, but 925 will help even more. .
.
There are many things to consider when making these decisions, and this is just one. Reach out if you want to go through an in-depth ROI discussion.

Is anyone else in the same boat? Which energy efficiency faux pas stands out most to you in your neighborhood? Our founder, Todd Collins is guilty of this too—especially in the winter when it is more obvious particularly on the roofs. .
