Passivhaus components provide optimum comfort in Summer and Winter

passivhaus components transform health and comfort in the retrofit of a London house
3 Passfield Drive, London - optimum indoor comfort and health conditions throughout its first winter

Our award winning social housing retrofit, carried out with Southern Housing under the Technology Strategy Board's Retrofit for the Future project, used passivhaus 'fabric-first' measures, together with a very efficient heat recovery ventilation unit. Monitoring of the house shows that it has been transformed from a cold house running with condensation and blighted by mould growth and asthmatic indoor conditions, to a house that has absolutely optimal indoor comfort and health conditions in winter and summer.

To see conditions before the retrofit, look at this short film: http://bere.co.uk/berearchitects-retrofits-future-episode-1

Optimum comfort and health conditions last summer too.
