Passive House in Different Climates introduces the seven Passive House principles, to help you create super-insulated, airtight buildings that require minimal energy use to heat, cool, dehumidify, and ventilate, with superior indoor air quality and year-round comfort. Seventeen case studies in four climate zones---marine, cold and very cold, mixed-dry and hot-dry, and mixed-humid and hot-humid---and in ten countries, show you how to achieve net-zero energy regardless of where you're building or what type of building is required. Includes more than 150 color illustrations.
Mary James is a science writer who specializes in covering building energy efficiency. She has written several books about passive buildings in North America. James Bill is president of Zero Impact Architecture and a founding member of Passive House California.
