Summer Comfort training - FREE for all!

Keep your cool and achieve optimal summer comfort for your Passivhaus project, by accessing our on-demand training on avoiding overheating risks.

Keeping cool - Avoiding overheating risks. On-demand.

The Passivhaus standard addresses summer overheating, with the stringent criterion which requires that internal temperatures do not exceed 25ºC for more than 10% of the year. However, changing weather, variations in occupant behaviour and assumptions made during modelling can potentially increase the risk of overheating.

Our short training course on avoiding overheating risks in Passivhaus projects is now available on on-demand and is FREE to access. The training covers: 

  • Design strategies to reduce risk

  • Limitations and constraints that may have an impact
