 [{{:​picopen:​enerphit.jpg?​160 |**Figure 1:  EnerPHit Seal**}}] \\ Achieving the Passive House Standard in refurbishments of existing buildings is not always a realistic goal, one of the reasons being that basement walls remain as barely avoidable thermal bridges even after refurbishment. In order to facilitate the achievement of an optimal standard of thermal protection in building refurbishments,​ the EnerPHit certification procedure was launched by the Passive House Institute in 2010. An optimal standard of thermal protection means a significantly better level of energy efficiency compared to the legal requirements must simultaneously go hand-in-hand with high cost efficiency of the thermal protection measures as a whole. At the same time, modernisation to the EnerPHit Standard also offers other advantages associated with the use of Passive House components, such as an excellent level of thermal comfort, structural integrity and high quality indoor air. [{{:​picopen:​enerphit.jpg?​160 |**Figure 1:  EnerPHit Seal**}}] \\ Achieving the Passive House Standard in refurbishments of existing buildings is not always a realistic goal, one of the reasons being that basement walls remain as barely avoidable thermal bridges even after refurbishment.

 The primary aim of this certification is to provide quality assurance for the refurbishment so that the building owner can be sure that the stipulated optimal standard of thermal protection is actually achieved and that the implemented measures prove to be adequate. This is all the more important because subsequent "​correction"​ of inadequate thermal protection measures almost always proves to be uneconomical. The EnerPHit standard requires either a maximum heating demand of 25 kWh/(m²a) (in central Europe) or alternatively the consistent use of Passive House components in accordance with the requirements for PHI certification of components. The heating demand calculated by the PHPP, and the quality of thermal protection of the individual components are indicated in the certificate. The primary aim of this certification is to provide quality assurance for the refurbishment so that the building owner can be sure that the stipulated optimal standard of thermal protection is actually achieved and that the implemented measures prove to be adequate.
