certified passive house consultant!

Our own Michael Hindle has received his certification as a Certified Passive House Consultant (CPHC). He is one of only three CPHC’s in the Baltimore area and only a handful in the state of Maryland. Passive House is an energy performance standard which sets a very ambitious goal of 90% energy use reductions for heating and cooling. The Passive House standard and the associated building strategies are supported by 19 years of exhaustive building performance monitoring and building science research. Consultants use highly accurate modeling software to project and determine energy use for all building types.
