Lively Passive House

Internationally-Certified Passive House in Texas
We’d never installed Mitsubishi Electric equipment before this project and quite frankly, we’ll probably never use anything else now that we’ve had this great experience

Inspired by the passive house concept, the Fagin Partners - a Dallas-based, father and son building team - were eager to bring a high-performance home to Texas. Looking for the ultimate in terms of heathy, indoor air quality, sound, aesthetics and energy efficiency, the Fagin Partners enlisted Mitsubishi Electric's Performance Construction Team to consult on the development of the 3,230-square-foot home and selection of mechanical systems. Utilizing Zoned Comfort Solutions® from Mitsubishi Electric, the Fagins built the first Internationally-Certified Passive House in Texas, which averages a $25 - $30 electric bill per month.
