passivhaus components transform health and comfort in the retrofit of a London house

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.
