As an evangelist for the RecoupAerator and its value to any Passive House project, Jason is a recognized ventilation practitioner and Passive House certification trainer. At the training program, he will be providing educational lectures on Passive House principles in whole-house ventilation, something that is crucial in today’s homes as a means of impacting the health and comfort of residences while also prolonging the life and durability of the individual buildings themselves.

  • August 8th – Chicago
  • August 24th – Portland, Oregon
  • August 31st – Denver

While Jason will be providing his expertise to HVACs, the training program overall will allow participants to:

  • Understand the implementation of Passive House principles in residential, commercial, and retrofit scenarios.
  • Learn from instructors who have designed and built Certified Passive Houses.
  • Work in inch/pound or metric units—PHIUS has adapted course material and Passive House Planning Package software for North America.
  • Study built examples—including mechanical systems—for each North American climate zone. 
  • Learn about local materials suited for Passive House applications
  • Perform cost optimization and economic feasibility tailored for the U.S. market.
