Watch out for the fire

“I do not recommend wood burning stoves in a building as efficient as a
Passivhaus because of the dangers of overheating, but clients are quite often
insistent and these may be more controllable.”

So it seems that I’m not alone in wanting a wood or multi fuel burning stove in a Passivhaus.

I guess this means it’ll be key to pick a smaller than you’d normally go for “wood burner” so that it can get up to operational temperature, but not cause the house to over heat.
