Is it possible to include a wood burning fireplace in a PassivHaus structure?
Because houses certified by PassivHaus have to meet an air tightness based on air changes, the integrity of the building envelope has to be superb. Could a fireplace be built (or are there models that already exist) that wouldn’t compromise the tightness and integrity of the envelope?
