Looking for Passive House certification for your high performance products?

Passive House Canada facilitates Passive House Institute (PHI) certification for components, wall systems and other high performance building materials. Our highly trained technical experts can provide you with energy and performance modelling, providing you with the data required for PHI certification.

Products that hold the Passive House Component certification have been tested for quality assurance and reliability with regards to energy performance, comfort, and indoor air quality criteria.


Benefits of Component Certification

Certification means visibility. Manufacturers who have certified their components are authorized to use the “Certified Passive House Component” seal for their products.

Because certified components are included in the international PHI database and integrated into PHPP energy modelling software, these components and their manufacturers enjoy markedly increased market visibility and product recognition.

While use of certified products is not required for Passive House building certification, PHI-certified components have their performance data readily available for designers to perform energy modeling with PHPP.


Our promise to you

Passive House Canada will provide thorough, expert consultation and facilitation throughout the component certification process with PHI, well as calculations of all component, junction, and thermal bridge models.

After initial certification fees, PHI levies a yearly fee to maintain your component’s presence in its international database. Manufacturers of PHI-certified components are also visible on the Passive House Canada website.
