IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
In this episode, we talk about how sustainability and aesthetic aren’t mutually exclusive – it’s absolutely possible to make something more efficient and beautiful at the same time! We talk about some of the passive home principles that make a huge difference to increasing energy efficiency and livability, including being strategic with windows to make use of passive solar, being mindful of thermal bridges and making your home airtight.
Luke explains how passive homes filter the air to create a healthy environment using hardly any energy, we talk about resilience planning to set your house up for the future and the impact that passive house principles have on your home and the wider community.
This is a jam packed episode as Luke shares loads of information on how to incorporate passive house principles into your home and life without compromising beauty. You’re going to love it.
