Passive House Planning Packaging Name:
-Mechanical cooling system applied in hot climate areas tend to be linked with
high carbon emissions.
-The aim of the paper is to test for the effectiveness of implementing passive
house planning package in hot climate settings.
-our main objective is to enhance thermal performance and to minimize energy
consumption of residential houses through the use of PHPP.
-Passive designs aids in addressing the local climate as well as he site conditions
so as to increase the comfort and health of building users by reducing the energy
-they are designed to reduce the temperature of buildings without the need for
-The study implements simulation study as the main research
-An Energy Simulation Software was used to evaluate the
performance of the houses that use PHPP.
-It monitors the temperature of the indoors and outdoors on
-Questionnaire were used on individuals that has been using
PHPP in their houses.
Passive cooling mainly uses free, renewable sources of energy for
instance sun and wind to provide cooling as well as ventilation for a
household (Al-Sallal & Al-Rais, 2012). It aids in avoiding the need for
mechanical cooling. It aids in minimizing the levels of energy use as well
as environmental impacts (Taleb, 2014). In addition passive houses aids
in preventing solar gains and thermal losses (Tronchin & Fabbri, 2008).
-it’s been a year of carrying out the research. We installed the energy
Simulation software six months ago. Our main aim is to conduct an
analysis on PHPP for a whole year.
-we have already implemented questionnaires so far.
Our Findings so far
-PHPP aids in building energy efficient home
-PHPP aids in lowering heating as well as air conditioning bills
– It provides better indoor air quality.
