This publication focuses on assessing the impact of the tightness of single-family houses with a higher energy standard on their energy demand for heating. To formulate conclusions quantitative and qualitative research, including tightness test (blower door) has been conducted in energy-efficient and passive houses. In the next step, energy demand for heating has been estimated. Based on the observation and results, the simulation of the impact of reducing the flow of infiltrated air through leaks in the buildings for energy demand for heating is calculated. The simulation results confirm the dependence between the tightness of the building and energy demand.
