MinnePHit House is First Cold-Climate Passive House Retrofit

March 8th, 2013 by Tim Eian

MinnePHit House EnerPHit certificate

The MinnePHit House received the Passivhaus Institute’s EnerPHit certification—making it the first cold-climate retrofit they ever certified. We were fortunate to partner with the PHI on this pilot project, which leverages their brand new retrofit certification program. We are excited about this milestone, and the fact that EnerPHit works in US climate zone 6 for a home that is over 80 years old. The results are truly amazing.
