Jason Morosko's Passive House

Posted on Fri, Aug 10, 2012

Jason Morosko started working at Ultimate Air in 1996, literally the day after he graduated high school. He continued throughout college and is now an engineer and the Vice-President of UltimateAir. Jason's career and lifestyle go hand in hand, for he lives with his wife and guitar-toting son in an energy efficient Passive House (which he built himself!). While financing the project was a “nightmare,” Jason wants everyone to know the relatively easy time he had constructing the home. He elaborates on the wonderful experience, "I was looking for the option that made the most sense to me in regards to carbon footprint and energy efficiency. I found out about Passive House around 2004, and built my home in 2010. It took about 18 months. It has the Green Building Council, Energy Star, and Passive House Institute US stamp of approval - but what really matters to me is my utility bill and the comfort of my home. Seriously, I heat and cool a 3200 sq. foot home for next to nothing; the inside temperature is always the same too. I sleep directly under my vent, and for someone who doesn't register pollen, even I notice a tremendous difference from my last home.”

Jason's family life and interests are characterized by the sameattributes that dominate his profession. "My fathers side of the family are all engineers. My father is a wannabe engineer, my brother is sort of an engineer, I AM an engineer!" laughs Jason. His biggest hobby is building things. "I've been building things since I was three: Legos, cabinets, houses, you name it, hehe. On my day off last week I started building a tree-house by myself. Right next to my passive house, I've built a passive chicken coop. If someone were to drive by my house they would think, 'Man this guy has a passion for shed roofs!'"

He officially joined as UltimateAir’s “super-electrician” after completing his degree.

He is married to his lovely wife and has a handsome 3 year old boy. Ming likes to play soccer, "although he cannot finish a game anymore 'cause he has gained some unnecessary weight.” He loves the atmosphere of his work; "Like a big family, everyone knows each other and cares for each other.”
