Zero energy bills
Passive technology, such as triple glazing, reduces thermal leakage, giving excellent overall U values. The addition of other energy saving technology can further improve efficiency and capitalise on UK government incentives giving a stunning home with a positive energy balance.
How is it possible?
Exceptionally thick (240mm) mineral wool insulation is built into the closed panels at factory stage. This provides a highly insulated layer – warm in winter/cool in summer. Triple glazed argon filled windows are fitted as standard. Precision engineering ensures joints between building sections form an airtight bond. Service conduits are embedded into the build at the factory stage, maintaining the integrity of the building fabric.
Real Life Benefits
In December 2011 the Dunkerley family bought a four-bedroom home on the Grange Development by Esh Construction in County Durham. The efficient Trivselhus Climate ShieldTM system and the use of an air source heat pump with under-floor heating and solar photovoltaic panels offset energy bills in the house by 50% in the first 12 months. Government payments for the use of green technology and energy efficiency then erased electricity bills. Christina Dunkerley said:
“We loved the design of the house and with children to watch over, the open plan layout was just what we were looking for. Our electricity bills are now non-existent.”
