Venting About Ventilation, Heat Pumps, and Net Zero with the Buildings+Beyond Team

January 06, 2022

Sometimes it’s good to vent. Well, if you ask a Passive House expert, it’s always good to vent. So, that’s exactly what we did for this episode.


Based on popular demand, the Buildings and Beyond team took a more informal approach to this month’s episode and gathered for a roundtable discussion. With a mix of backgrounds and expertise, we came to the table with a different topic and shared our thoughts, findings, and of course, did some venting…


Here are the topics we discussed:


  1. Kelly – Ventilation [3:05]
  2. Robb – Electrifying domestic water heating [18:45]
  3. Dylan – All-electric commercial kitchens [35:00]
  4. Alex – Backup power generation in a zero-carbon world [49:45]
