BLUE HILL, Maine, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Architects, builders, and homeowners can track and analyze performance of buildings with the new PowerWise inView Passive™ House Monitoring. This technology, co-developed by passive house experts, is endorsed by Passive House Institute US (PHIUS), the leading passive building research and certification institute.
Passive house buildings use 80% less energy than traditional construction and provide superior home comfort and air quality. The inView Passive™ House monitoring system documents performance, costs, and environmental conditions of buildings and individual HVAC and hot water systems.
Katrin Klingenberg, Co-Founder and Executive Director of PHIUS says, "We are excited about the value that the inView Passive monitoring package brings to our growing community. For passive builders, the proof is in the pudding—monitored performance is where it's at."
The technology uses sensors and meters to collect data for air temperature, relative humidity, VOC, heat pumps, HRVs, ERVs, energy, and water usage/storage. Customers can access instant and historical information through online dashboards.
Carsten Steenberg PowerWise CEO and eMonitor co-inventor says "we are thrilled about our new endorsement from PHIUS. Passive house monitoring is an important part of our portfolio for monitoring energy-efficient buildings. It is great to see interest in the passive house concept. We are honored to prove this concept via our inView Passive™ House Monitoring."
