Last week we went to Nuremberg, Germany, for the 2016 edition of FensterBau, one of the most important expos worldwide for window production. Target of the fair is the entire sector of windows and openings. The event is organized alongside the Holz-Handwerk expo, addressing wood carpentry in the broadest sense.
During Enrico’s recent visit to Colorado, we finally had the chance to visit Andrew Michler’s passive house. At about 2.000 m (6.400 ft), in the mountains near Fort Collins, Colorado, this building is capable of remaining comfortable even in case of a power outage, with an interior temperature of about 18°C (64°F) with no heating.
With this article, we’d like to cover a topic that is very important for both comfort and energy efficiency of buildings: the ventilation of the house. Unfortunately, this matter is as important as it is unknown to most people.
