Is the passive building too complicated and technological? 

The Passive house itself is a simple building, efficient and comfortable for living in it. The ventilation system has fewer control options than a standard TV. Most of the system's maintenance doesn't require a qualified technician's visit, the filter replacement can be performed by anyone.

The occupants control the ventilation system using a display with the size of a mobile phone and easy to manage interface.
The adjustment (commissioning) of the ventilation system, which is done by experts prior to the residents' moving in the house, ensures accurate and balanced operation of the system.

The heat exchanger's filter replacement is easy and can be done in seconds. It is the only responsibility of the passive house's occupants.
