At DW Castricum, you have the opportunity to enjoy your vacation in a sustainable and passive holiday home. This holiday park features one of the few passive houses in the Netherlands. Sustainable passive holiday homes are becoming an increasingly popular choice for people looking for a comfortable and environmentally friendly holiday destination. These homes are specially designed to be energy-efficient, contributing to a more sustainable future.

One of the key aspects is insulation. The holiday homes are equipped with high-quality insulation materials such as glass wool or mineral wool, providing excellent thermal and acoustic insulation. This allows for heat retention during winter and heat prevention during summer, reducing the need for energy to maintain a comfortable temperature inside the house. Additionally, soundproofing is considered to minimize noise disturbances. The holiday homes are also designed with airtightness in mind, limiting the amount of warm air escaping and further reducing energy consumption.

Another important aspect is the use of sustainable energy sources. The passive holiday homes are equipped with solar panels, providing electricity and contributing to the reduction of CO2 emissions. They also feature a heat recovery system, a heat pump, and a shower heat recovery unit. Lastly, they are designed to maximize natural light and minimize solar heat gain in the summer while allowing optimal sunlight in during the winter. This ensures year-round comfort and utilizes the sustainable and free heat from the sun.

In summary, sustainable passive holiday homes are an excellent choice for those seeking a comfortable and environmentally friendly holiday destination. With high-quality insulation, proper airtightness, sustainable energy sources, and a suitable location, these homes offer lower energy consumption and a smaller ecological footprint. You can enjoy an unforgettable vacation while contributing to a sustainable world.
