The DV96 Adroit from Airflow Developments has helped a social housing project in Leicester to achieve a full Passive House status.
In order to be granted full Passive House status, buildings must provide a high level of occupant comfort while using minimal energy for heating and cooling.
Each dwelling at Heathcott Road does not exceed 0.6 m3/hr/m2 air changes per hour at 50 Pascals pressure. Many of the dwellings were air tight to an exceptional infiltration level of just 0.2 m3/hr/m2 air changes per hour at 50 Pascals pressure.
In addition, to preventing the build-up of indoor air pollutants, the DV96 Adroit MVHR recovers valuable heat that would typically be lost as part of the ventilation process and uses this energy to pre-warm fresh, filtered air that is constantly brought in from outside and circulated within the home. Therefore, the property’s temperature is maintained and energy consumption is reduced.
The units benefit from low energy EC fans, a triple filter system that prevents airborne pollutants as small as carbon from entering the property, frost protection, an automatic 100% summer bypass facility and also feature an intelligent inbuilt temperature and humidity sensor.
Robert Dennis, Product Marketing Executive at Airflow Developments commented: “With all buildings now fully occupied and Passive House approved, we believe Heathcott Road represents an example of what all future housing developments both private and social should aspire to be.”
