We had two residential projects in this year's Open House Dublin:
1) ‘Energy Efficient Retrofit and Extension for Garden Lovers’ in Albany Road, Ranelagh
2) ‘EnerPHit retrofit And Passivhaus extension’ in Wynberg Park, Monkstown
About 300 enthusiastic people turned up to see the Albany Road house, and 240 to see the Monkstown EnerPHit. We were giving three tours at a time at one stage. There was a lot of fun and energy and all seemed to appreciate the care and focus we brought to making these comfortable, bright and energy efficient homes!
It's very clear to us that, unlike a lot of industry prejudice, many homeowners DO want to know technical information about insulation, airtightness, heating and ventilation, etc. We think too much of what is served up to homeowners (on guidance documents and websites) is simplified and doesn't serve them sufficiently.
