An Active House offers excellent indoor comfort
An Active House is a building that lets in abundant daylight and fresh air, thereby improving the quality of the comfort. This also means that the thermal environment is of high quality.
We spend 90% of our time indoors; therefore the quality of the indoor climate has a considerable impact on our health and comfort. A good indoor climate is a key quality of an Active House. It must be an integrated part of the house design to ensure good daylight conditions, thermal environment and indoor air quality. To support this process, the parameters in the specifications must be considered.
In order to evaluate each building’s indoor climate, we utilise the four levels of ambition mentioned under Active House Radar earlier. Architects and engineers can use these levels to work towards creating their own specific levels for a building.
