Component Award 2016 – cost-efficient ventilation systems

Following two years of successful Component Awards for Passive House Windows, the Component Award 2016 is dedicated to the topic of residential ventilation with a specific focus on energy efficient retrofits.

The aim is to highlight cost-effective and practical ventilation concepts . The comparison of the solutions will be based upon a life cycle approach taking into account all costs, from planning, acquisition, installation, adjustment and subsequent maintenance costs.
