First certified passive house in western US

The Breezeway House outside Salt Lake City is so energy efficient that it provides about 75% of its energy via solar passive design, solar on the roof, exceptional insulation, and mechanical ventilation

The architect David Brach says “We need to start relying on smart design and low-energy passive solutions that assure comfort”¦ It doesn’t make sense to rely on expensive and energy guzzling mechanical equipment to heat and cool our buildings anymore.”
