Tell us your story

Our air-quality monitors suggest that we are hitting RESET targets 90% of the time. The sensors are placed within units where occupant behavior can skew the results in a downward direction. This is a phenomenal finding. The building EUI is estimated to be in the mid twenties as we have not been operating for a year yet.

Air-quality is normally not available to low-income residents. Now the residents wee that they have superior air-quality on their smart-phone. There were no additional measures to improve air-quality other than specifying low VOC finishes and using and ERV for ventilation air. Passive House building naturally are inclined to meet RESET air-quality standards.

This exciting two for one makes the health case for Passive House. Anecdotally we have noticed that our Passive House projects almost never require dusting!”
