The UltimateAir team was very excited about attending the 8th annual PHIUS conference and expo. From the 16th through 19th of October, the frontrunners of the United States Passive House industry convened on Pittsburgh to share their knowledge, ideas, and desires for growth. Overall, the wealth of knowledge that is transferred at these yearly conferences is imperative to continued development of Passive House construction in the North American market.

Passive House building is the world’s most extensive construction method. By utilizing highly technical building science – the Passive method reduces heat and cooling load by up to 90% over general homes built to “code.” One aspect of obtaining the Passive House standard involves highly efficient recovery ventilation. That is where the team at UltimateAir comes in! Our RecoupAerator ERV technology has been incorporated in dozens of Passive House projects across North America.

Overall, the annual PHIUS conference did not disappoint. We were able to speak with many of our great customers and learn about some amazing Passive House projects that are in the near future. The UltimateAir team is looking forward to this coming year and the continued growth of North America’s Passive House industry.

The expo floor was littered with some great informational boards describing recent North American Passive House projects. Always helpful to see real life examples especially when they utilized our RecoupAerator ERV!
