Does Passive House avoid the need for central heating?

Installing conventional central heating shouldn’t be necessary when building to the Passive House Standard. In fact, the heating peak usage must be limited to 10 watts per square metre for a Certified Passive House. This relatively tiny heat load can be supplied through an integrated radiant heater in the MVHR, a small towel heater or even candles. However, if an indoor wood heater is more your thing, this is still possible in a Passive House.
