Private House, Leamington Spa
This project involved the complete refurbishment of a private house to give it both a facelift and to showcase energy reduction measures available on the UK domestic market.
Dramatic reductions in energy consumption were achieved by a number of measures. A double height south facing conservatory was been added to capture solar gains. The heat is then distributed around the house using a mechanical ventilation heat recovery system. LED lighting is used throughout and high levels of insulation have been added to the existing walls, floors and roofs. Including the cost offset provided by photovoltaic cells on the roof the building now saves approximately £1500 per year on energy bills.
