Video no longer working?
by Alison Ray

I wanted to share this wonderful, informative video with a client who is new to Passive House building methods and materials, but was sad to find today that the video does not appear to be working any more. I won't overrule the possibility of "user error" with my system updating so frequently lately - so first, is anyone else able to view this video? Are there certain browsers that allow it to function normally? Or is there another location on which we can view it?

Great video, we love the focus on North American-made products!

Great Video

Nice to see all these Passive House products out there. It's exciting to see these products taking hold here in the USA. It has been a long time coming. Katrin Klingenberg did a great job of picking out these vendors and doing a quick summary of what they are offering. Intus Windows has a great triple pane window and like Katrin mentioned, the uPVC line is very affordable for a highly energy-efficient tripe pane window. They are my window choice for my future Passive House. I wish I could have attended the show, maybe next year.
