Haus 96, the first multifamily Passive House retrofit building in Brooklyn, will be open for guided tours on Saturday, November 10, 2012. This project proves that historic preservation, comfort, healthy indoor air, and dramatically reduced energy costs are compatible.
Duncan Architect performed the energy modeling for this project for architect Ken Levenson. Building science geeks may appreciate the following data:
- Heat Demand 27 kWh/m²a
- Cooling Demand 5 kWh/m²a
- Primary (Source) Energy Demand 111 kWh/m²a
- Airtightness 1.98 ACH50
