PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH
We take the outside air, pass it through our Nilan energy- efficient total indoor climate solution, which heats the air and filters it to ensure the inside air is free from bacteria, pollens and germs
PROTECTING YOUR PLANET
We aren’t using fossil fuels to heat your home. They are heated using the heat emitted by your appliances and some other very clever things! Moving towards a net zero operational carbon built house is achievable when new homes are built to Passivhaus standard.
PROTECTING YOUR WALLET
Because your home is so airtight, over 90% of the heat generated inside, stays inside! That’s a huge saving on your annual energy spend!
5 KEY PRINCIPLES THAT MAKE PASSIVHAUS HOMES
This is a key component of these homes. We use high spec materials which significantly improve the thermal performance of your home, reducing your heating bills and your carbon emissions.
HIGH QUALITY WINDOWS AND DOORS
High specification doors and accredited triple glazed windows ensure that the heat in your house stays in your house.
The Airtightness of our homes meet Passivhaus exacting standards preventing heat losses through the fabric of the building thus reducing heating costs.
MECHANICAL HEAT RECOVERY VENTILATOR
Our Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilator ensures a daily air exchange with the removal of dust particles, smells and excess humidity in exchange for a pleasant and healthy indoor climate.
THERMAL BRIDGE-FREE DETAILING
Thermal bridges allow huge heat losses in houses through poor insulation and poor design. The Passivhaus Standard uses clever design and a continuous thermal building “envelope” to deliver radical energy efficiency and exceptional comfort.
The Passive House model is an internationally recognised building standard delivering homes that require significantly reduced energy for heating or cooling. Incredibly, Passive Homes consume between 75%-90% less heating energy than a conventional house
