The PassivHaus Trust claims that buildings account for 35% of total global energy consumption. A large percentage of which comes from the use of heating systems. PassivHaus is an international design standard that improves the thermal performance of homes to prevent the amount homeowners rely on central heating to keep their homes warm.
Passive House windows aim to improve the energy efficiency of homes beyond UK standards, with U-values as low as 0.6W/m²K. The timber-aluminium composite profile provides unrivalled thermal insulation to help prevent heat from escaping.
Amongst an environmental climate crisis, the PassivHaus Trust is an independent organisation that promotes the adoption of PassivHaus standards in the UK. At Internorm, we are proud members of the PassivHaus Trust. We manufacture and supply passive house windows that not only prevent heat loss but also utilise heat from the sun through solar glass and advanced shading technology.
Passive House windows operate by using and managing external heat from the sun and retaining it within the building to keep it warmer for longer. They also work to prevent heat loss so that there is less need to rely on central heating.
Our Passivhaus windows feature airtight seals that can achieve astonishing levels of insulation with minimal thermal bridges as well as mechanical ventilation systems that improve the air quality inside.
Passive House Windows are excellent for commercial projects because larger buildings typically have high carbon emissions. By installing Passive House windows in office blocks, schools, and hotels, as well as in new build renovations, you can help reduce your carbon footprint.
As an added bonus, you can even reduce energy bills by choosing Passive House windows. They utilise solar energy alongside preventing heat loss to help buildings heat and cool themselves. Internorm’s innovative solar glazing helps contribute to this.
There are certain guidelines for PassivHaus windows and projects, including the use of solar power, minimal heat loss, and energy-efficient windows. At Internorm, our windows are suitable for PassivHaus projects because we use specialist technology to create energy-efficient windows that utilise solar energy.
Our solar glass helps to reflect light from the sun using shading technology to prevent overheating. This means that your home can retain heat at a comfortable temperature and still cool itself without the use of an aircon unit or electric fans.
As well as providing exceptional thermal insulation, Passive House windows have a range of other benefits. For example, timber-aluminium composites offer unrivalled strength. The aluminium outer profile is up to five times stronger than other windows on the market.
Additionally, Passive House windows also contribute to noise reduction. The tight seal improves soundproofing abilities, decreasing noise by up twelve times!
