We feel it is important to talk about how the Passive House projects (or any building) is performing energy-wise so that we can improve upon it and share information so that ours and others future projects can be improved.
Why energy performance is important:
This is a Brooklyn
This monitoring serves several key benefits:
-Allows the occupants to understand how their behavior directly influences energy consumption. -Serves as a diagnostic tool if the energy use is higher than predicted. -Allows architects, engineers, builders, and owners to understand how their designs are performing. The data provides a clear picture of what is and isn't working and helps strategize for energy-efficiency improvements on future projects.
