Greenport Passive House featured in Inhabitat

Popular green architecture and home design website, Inhabitat, just published an article on the Greenport Passive House, designed and built by architect Wayne Turett of The Turett Collaborative. ZeroEnergy Design’s Jordan Goldman provided Passive House Consulting and Mechanical Design for this project.

The airtight dwelling was created in alignment with the Passive House standard, which focuses on the building envelope and passive solar gain to achieve exceptionally low energy consumption and operational carbon footprint. In addition to the airtight building envelope and continuous insulation, the all-electric home features a ducted air source heat pump for heating and cooling and an energy recovery ventilation system for fresh, filtered indoor air.
