Retrofit Options Appraisal
Using the Passivhaus Planning Package, we carried out an early, design stage assessment of the impact of various retrofit options on the overall heating energy demand of a detached house. This included an assesment of the benefits of various types of “skirt” insulation to the perimeter, in lieu of more expensive floor insulation options.
Thermal Bridging Study for a Retrofit Project
Repositioning of flitched beam below the top of the insulation changes a terrible thermal bridge (Psi=0.14) into an acceptable one.
House Extension & Re-organisation: Towards EnerPhit
I am very pleased to confirm that I am now a Certified Passive House Designer.
Passivhaus is a complete design & construction philosophy that results in exceptionally low heating and cooling demands, achieving savings of over 75% versus average new builds1. A building can only be certified as a Passive House if it is designed and verifiably built to stringent criteria on thermal and acoustic comfort, on air quality and energy demand.
