Glossary

Low energy building indicates a building that has a better energy performance than the standard alternative/energy efficiency requirements in building codes. Low-energy buildings typically use high levels of insulation, energy efficient windows, low levels of air infiltration and heat recovery ventilation to lower heating and cooling energy. They may also use passive solar building design techniques or active solar technologies. These homes may also use hot water heat recycling technologies to recover heat from showers and dishwashers.
