Interior side of External Walls - Passive House Insulation Series (part 6)
Friday 17th July 2020
Airtightness is one of the key pillars on which low energy, durable healthy buildings are constructed.
The airtightness strategy and materials used to make my new build Passive House airtight is described in this video. I outline the use of airtight structural boards and Tescon Vana airtight tape. I also explain how to pre-plan key junctions for follow on trades to improve performance, reduce complexity and reduce costs.
