EnerPHit insulation system certification
The Passive House Institute is proud to offer the new certification for EnerPHit insulation systems as a further planning aid in retrofits. Product manufacturers can now have their insulation systems certified for use in EnerPHit energy retrofit projects.
For the certification, currently only for use in cool-temperate climates such as that of central Europe, EnerPHit suitable insulation solutions for the entire building envelope are being developed by manufacturers in cooperation with the Passive House Institute. This includes suggested model solutions for a variety of typical building component connections along with the entry of their respective thermal bridge coefficients (Psi values). For EnerPHit certification, use of certified details need not be accompanied by thermal bridge calculations - designers can be certain that requirements for EnerPHit building certification with regard to the certified details will be met.
