Turkey's first certified Passive House cuts energy use by 90%

The original building was designed and renovated according to EnerPHit criteria of German Passive House Institute. It is a Multi Comfort Building that has excellent acoustic, visual and thermal performance and aims an energy saving of over 90 percent. Depending on the time of year, the air supply derived from the ventilation system is preheated or pre-cooled with the aid of a ground heat exchanger. The energy demand of the building is largely covered by a photovoltaic system in the garden.
