Incredibly Informative

If you are thinking about building a passive house, this is the podcast for you! I am planning on constructing cabins in East Texas, where the temperature is consistently over 100 degrees Fahrenheit right now! There is no time to waste! I am so thankful for these podcasts and the professionals who are interviewing and being interviewed! We can each help in our own little way to bring the temperature down on our planet.

An Incredible Resource

I’m so grateful for this podcast and everything that the Passive House Accelerator has been doing to promote and inspire Passive House professionals around the world. Each episode is packed with valuable information and resources for anyone looking to advance their knowledge in the Passive House building standard. Their weekly webinars are priceless too!! Keep it up PHA!!

Awesome Podcast!!!

An incredibly valuable podcast loaded with knowledge, insight and a little humor. So many bright and intelligent leaders from around the world in their respective fields paving the way on a topic that needs to be shared. As a builder originally from NZ and now living in Boston, MA. I know and understand the challenges around what can often be a difficult subject for some to wrap there heads around but this podcast offers real evidence based knowledge and solutions. Thank you and keep up the great work.
