MVHR Case Study

Parkfield development in Thurlestone

We have worked closely with a contractor in Parkfield, Thurlestone to develop 4 affordable homes which are the most energy efficient homes in the South Hams. These homes have been built to Level 5 of the Code for Sustainable Homes which is twice as efficient at conserving energy than the average home. 

These homes are all-electric with projected fuel costs of below £250 per year for a five person family. You can read the whole article here.

What Optiheat did

We were responsible for the installation of:
  • Heat Recovery Ventilation. The MVHR systems we installed at each property provide fresh air to every room, whilst removing damp stale air from the bathrooms and kitchen. The heat is recovered from the stale air to provide warmth to the home to help keep heating costs down.
  • Solar Thermal. Each property has 16 solar tubes which will provide 60 - 70% of the home's annual hot water.
  • All Domestic Plumbing. We provided the domestic plumbing for each property.
The tenants are all moved into their affordable housing in Thurlestone, South Hams and enjoying the benefits of living in a highly insulated, passivhaus style building which is very economical to run.
