ABSTRACT

Ultra-low-energy house (in some countries Passive house) is a term known very well to engineers and architects all over the world. In these times of minimizing an energy loads and negative emissions, energy efficient houses (ultra-low-energy, net-zero houses, positive houses) are one of the best ways to meet European “20-20-20” targets. The main topic of this paper is dynamic assessment on energy performance of an ultralow- energy family house designed for Slovak Republic climate. Family house was designed taking in account architectural, environmental and constructional requirements of today´s European directives focusing on energy performance and energy efficiency. Ultra-low-energy house foundations were evaluated using two dimensional thermophysical software PsiTherm. Results of this project are displayed in numbers as well as in graphic figures. Our goal was to find out how the designed building will perform energetically and environmentally so we could predict and minimize environmental load on nature and society in case of its actual realization.
