Refurbishment with Passive House components

Existing buildings account for the greatest share of energy used in buildings. A great number of these buildings will require overall or partial refurbishment or modernisation in the near future. Such occasions are perfect opportunities to reduce the energy consumption of these buildings quite significantly by applying appropriate methods. Using components developed for new Passive Houses also allows for significant energy savings in existing buildings.
