        Webinar: PHIUS vs. PHI Standards Part II

        Let's Talk about Summer Comfort


        August 15, 2018

        10pm PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET

        Earn 1 CPHC CEU  (AIA CEU Pending)

        Presenter: Katrin Klingenberg, PHIUS Executive Director & Co-Founder


        Passive building standards today are now much better known and understood among green building professionals than just a few years ago. Passive building activity in North America has increased exponentially over the past three years - from single family residential projects to multifamily to now more and more commercial structures. There are currently two standards being used in North America to design passive buildings: PHIUS+2015 Passive Building Standard for North America, based on research completed by the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS) in cooperation with Building Science Corporation under a DOE grant and the earlier European Passivhaus Standard pioneered by the German Passivhaus Institut in the 90s in Germany. As discussed in Part I of this series (https://youtu.be/7itfrimTlAs), both pathways lead to very different results, but especially regarding "Summer Comfort". Overheating early on surfaced as one of the major design challenges when using the European one size fits all approach, even in mild European climates. The issue is compounded when designing for mixed and hot climates as well as when designing larger buildings with high internal gains. This webinar will talk about the differences between both standards' approaches to assure summer comfort. We will explain the reasons why designers using a one size fits all standard approach are often challenged to choose the appropriate insulation amount for best summer comfort. We will explain the significant changes that were made under the PHIUS+ 2015/18 protocol to address the overheating issue and solve the climate and comfort challenges while maintaining all other benefits of passive design.


        Since the changes were made PHIUS+2015 has gained significant market share and is now used to design and certify the vast majority of passive projects in North America (PHIUS certified 98% of all projects in 2017).


        Katrin Klingenberg is Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Passive House Institute US (PHIUS). In 2003, Ms. Klingenberg designed and completed the first home to meet passive house standards in the United States. She has designed and consulted on numerous successful passive house and building projects across North America’s varied climate zones since. In addition to her executive role at PHIUS she is the lead instructor for PHIUS Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC®) training. In that role she directs curriculum development. She also directs the technical and research programs of PHIUS, and is a licensed architect in Germany. She frequently presents on the passive building topic nationally and internationally.
