We Design and Build Passive Homes that are Highly-Sustainable, Energy Efficient, and Beautiful Just Like Your Dream Home Should Be

If you are looking to build a home that helps you cut utility costs while minimising your environmental footprint, then a passive house is the right choice. The team at ATN Constructions is experienced in building eco-friendly structures that comply with the requirements of a passive house.

Choosing ATN will leave you with an energy-efficient home that’s airtight and thermally efficient with a strong structure that’s built to last.

What is a Passive Home?

Some conventional homes built in Australia perform poorly when it comes to energy efficiency. These houses rely entirely on cooling and heating systems to maintain their indoor temperature; a design fault that increases your utility bills.

These high-end heating and cooling systems rely on the power drawn from fossil fuels which contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions.

A passive house is a building designed and constructed to reduce your environmental footprint. These homes require less energy compared to conventional homes due to airtightness and thermal efficiency, which help maintain temperature without relying on cooling and heating systems.

Well-insulated homes use natural heat directed from the heat recovery ventilation system and targeted passive solar gains.
The airtight and insulated fabric eliminates unnecessary costs in cooling down the home. Less power is required, which means significant savings.

Perks of Building a Passive Home in Australia

Building a passive house comes with a long list of benefits, including fewer utility bills and a reduced environmental footprint.

LASTS LONGER

The combination of a smart building, excellent design, and proven building science together give these homes an environment that’s free from condensation and mould. As a result, the house lasts longer and possesses fewer structural issues.

LOW ON MAINTENANCE

Passive homes built by ATN Constructions are expected to see lower maintenance costs. The durable building components and simple mechanical systems are easy to operate and require minimal charges for their upkeep.

SOUND INSULATED

ATN Constructions builds passive homes using durable roof panels and insulated walls with ultimate airtightness to keep the noise outside your home so that you can enjoy a quiet and peaceful environment.

ENHANCED AIR QUALITY

In addition to saving you money, passive homes help improve your health. The HRV (Heat Recovery System) supplies fresh air to the house while eliminating odours, pollens, dust, pollutants, and excessive moisture.

HIGHLY RESILIENT

A passive home maintains the temperature inside the house for longer. Even in the occurrence of a power outage, the temperature in a passive home remains unchanged for a long time.

ENERGY EFFICIENT

Passive homes have the highest energy efficiency, and building a passive home with ATN Constructions can help you save 60-70% on the conventional cooling and heating systems you have been using in your existing house.

COST EFFECTIVE

Building a passive home can be marginally more expensive than conventional homes, but these are cost-effective investments in the long run. The reduced heating bills and fewer maintenance expenses save you more money, leaving you with fewer long-term expenses.
