This FIVE BEDROOM ECO FRIENDLY HOUSE is designed to maximise south facing roof slopes to heighten the effectiveness of Solar, Thermal and Photovoltaic (PV) Panels, and the majority of window area is kept to the South side of the house to maximise passive solar gain and reduce heat loss. The house benefits from large amounts of insulation to the walls, floors and ceilings to further reduce heat loss and has a high degree of air tightness.
The house incorporates various methods of reducing non-sustainable energy consumption; heating and hot water are supplied by Solar thermal panels leading to a 1000L thermal store and a highly efficient wood-burning stove, with an air source heat pump to ensure a backup supply of hot water is available, and PV panels provide sustainable electricity to the house. A heat recovery unit ensures the house is provided with a constant supply of fresh air which is preheated in the winter thus saving energy. Grey water re-use was also installed into Dykewood, therefore reducing its water consumption.
