Passive house have very small heat losses, therefore, no conventional heating system is needed and investing in a conventional central heating system is unnecessary. It is a concept that optimises indoor comfort and building costs.

This means that the cost savings for the heating system can, in part, compensate for the higher cost of high performance building components. Moreover, by using less energy over its lifetime, a Passive House not only generates a smaller environmental impact, it also incurs lower energy costs during use. In addition, a Passive House decreases the financial impact on occupants that rising energy prises may bring.
