We have started work on two step-by-step refurbishments of terraced houses; one in Sevenoaks, the other in Lighthorne near Coventry. Thermographic and airleakage tests are in progress, PHPP calculations show the potential for improvement.

This approach has only recently been introduced, allowing thermal and air tightness upgrades to be carried out sequentially as part of an overall plan, eventually obtaining Passivhaus certification as an EnerPHit refurbishment.

Both properties coincidentally have the same construction, including use of asbestos boards, cavity walls, solid floor, and date from the 1950’s.
