Earlier this year, Innotech Windows + Doors introduced the Defender 88PH System, a Passive House Institute (PHI) certified window system.

In the last two years, the number of Passive House units in North American has quadrupled and over one quarter of these projects are located in the Province of British Columbia (source). One of the reasons the Passive House standard has grown in popularity is because it is a proven building standard that offers an effective pathway for meeting the higher steps of the BC Energy Step Code.

Earlier this year, Innotech Windows + Doors introduced the Defender 88PH System, a Passive House Institute (PHI) certified window system. And while it’s one thing to launch a new window system, it’s even more exciting to see the windows installed in a future Passive House certified project.
