7th Annual North American Passive House Conference

Posted on Tue, Oct 23, 2012

The Passive House standard strictest building energy standard in the world—and that standard is not met without UltimateAir’s RecoupAerator. Buildings that meet the Passive House checkmarks use 80 percent less energy than buildings that don’t, all while creating an environment of finer air quality.

UltimateAir’s own Jason Morosko attended The Passive House Conference in Denver last month. In addition to giving a lecture on the importance of earth air tubes, Morosko also had the opportunity to see ten current Passive Houses at various stages of construction. Sponsored by Passive House frontiersman Brian Fuentez, the tour showcased his current projects.

The 2012 event was the 7th annual North American Passive House conference. This year proved to have an increase in attendees, exhibitors, and presentations. The Passive House standard is growing rapidly in the United States. It truly is the standard of tomorrows building market. 

Passive House is the only standard within the US that requires mechanical ventilation like the RecoupAerator in its building code criteria with minimum performance standards.  “This is the best market for us,” said Morosko. “It’s the only building code that mandates our product.”

The best way to get started on your own Passive House is to find a Passive House consultant near you. Mososko serves as a consultant in Athens, Ohio. Morosko's personal work can be viewed here

For Morosko, the best part about owning a Passive House is that there is no utility bill. “That just doesn’t get hold,” he said. “It’s nine times more efficient than any standard construction.”
