The Building Regulations have recently changed and meeting the requirements of the new Part L have become more onerous. It is no longer sufficient to insulate to a minimum standard and allow for shoddy workmanship and then pass the regulations by bolting on renewable technologies, now you have to ensure that your home meets the new Target Fabric Energy Efficiency with improved levels of thermal insulation & air tightness with controlled ventilation. The new regulations now seem to be adopting the principals of Passivhaus construction, though they still have a way to go to meet that standard!
As Certified Passivhaus designers we believe in ‘Putting Fabric First’, our aim is to provide you with a home that has a high level of comfort, is economical to run and reduces any worries of fuel poverty for the future. At an early stage we will calculate your predicated energy assessment so that a full technical specification can be provided for the structure, heating and ventilation of your home and we can then work with you to ensure that this is delivered. We want your home to be as we have designed it to be with your help.
As part of the Carbon System Homes offer, we can also supply you with all the components that help you to meet your energy assessment such as Passivhaus certified windows and doors, Air Tightness products, Mechanical Ventilation with Heat recovery and renewable heating systems.
