HRV - UK PASSIVHAUS TRUST AWARDS 2016- URBAN AWARD WINNER LANSDOWNE DRIVE, LONDON. WE DESIGNED, SUPPLIED AND INSTALLED THE HEATRECOVERY VENTILATION SYSTEM- OCT 16
 

Total Home Environment are very proud to be involved in this 2016 UK Passivhaus Trust Award winning home. We first of all completed a room by room heat loss calculation to help Bernard Tulkens decide what heating system would be suitable for his home as he was initially contemplating having our 2013 Build It! Award winning Combi compact service unit. (This provides not only heat recovery ventilation but also some space heating and a 185L tank of hot water too!) It was decided in the end to go with a heat recovery ventilation system in this two storey 102m² eco home. We designed, installed and commissioned the entire system. All the rigid safe-seal metal ducting is exposed so the installation of it had to be spot on. Our work is shown in several photographs and featured in the YouTube video as well.
