Yogi Berra once said, “In theory, there is no difference between practice and theory. In practice, there is.” In reality, a Passive House is of far greater value to its owners, occupants, and society. In theory, Passive House construction and certification should result in higher value as real property. In practice, there’s no such guarantee.
