Passive House Revolution (2013) ($3)

Create a Low Energy Home: Join the Passive House Revolution!

Passive House Revolution catches you up to all of the most important developments in efficient building and home design over the last 20 years.

Applying an innovative combination of construction and retrofitting techniques, and making certain materials and orientation decisions, a home or building can reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 80%.

Because of this enormous built in energy savings, the Passive House creates an exceptional return on investment from both an environmental and financial perspective.

You'll see a clear comparison in energy use between the typical and the low-energy passive house.

Could you imagine reducing your energy use by up to 80%?

In this timely film you will meet and witness the work of some of the leading builders and architects in this field. This includes Wolfgang Feist, the creator of the Passive House standard, and Katrin Klingenberg, who first brought passive house to the United States from Germany.

You will see homes across North America being retrofitted to this amazing energy efficient standard, and what satisfied owners think afterwards. Imagine living in a cold climate and not even requiring a furnace to stay toasty warm? This film shows you how!

Buildings use nearly 50% of the energy in North America. Thankfully we can start to address our energy costs and CO2 emissions with technology and methods that are available today, and the information in the Passive House Revolution leads the way.

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
