Passive designPassive design is an approach that takes advantage of the climate to maintain a comfortable temperature range within the home. This is achieved through the appropriate orientation of the house on its site to make the most of natural heating and cooling. House orientation is the key component to passive design, with spatial zoning, thermal mass, ventilation, insulation, shading and glazing also being contributing factors. It is a relatively simple strategy, intended to keep summer heat out and winter heat in, moderating the temperature of the home for comfort all year round. Passive design can be easily achieved with upfront thinking and planning during the design phase of a home build. The best bit is it’s free – this efficient design strategy relies solely on the sun and breezes to achieve thermal comfort within the home, with the added benefit of reducing the home’s operating energy costs over its lifespan.
