  • Is there a data bank of passive houses in NZ ?
    If a house is advertised as a German passive house does it have to have certification to do so?

    • Hello Christine,

      Passive Houses in NZ can be found on the international database here: http://www.passivhausprojekte.de/index.php?lang=en#s_4d3cdc5223530d23eb93da98cd5a646e If that doesn’t just show NZ projects, you can use the ‘Advanced Search’ option at the top of the page to filter the results to show just NZ projects.

      If a house (or other building) is advertised as a “Passive House” then it should be certified by an independent and authorised Passive House building certifier to meet the international Passive House standard. The owners will have a certificate to indicate this. As the standard originates in Germany, it is sometimes referred to as the “German Passive House” standard, or even the “German Passivhaus”, standard. In all cases, to make this claim the building should be certified as noted above.

      I hope that helps?
