Passivhaus self build, Crosby Ravensworth | EcoArcBuilding started on this home, in Crosby Ravensworth, in August 2014 and it was completed in May 2015, with Passivhaus certification following that August.  The home owners will be on hand to show you round and share their experiences. They aimed to use local suppliers and contractors whenever possible. The main contractor was Alan Brockbank, B&H Construction, based in Colby.

The house achieved airtightness of 0.3 air changes per hour. It uses a Paul MVHR unit supplied by Green Building Store. Heating is provided by low temperature radiators fed from a Viessmann Vitocal 222 air-source heat pump, which also supplies the hot water. Backup heating is available from a Morso S11 wood-burning stove with external air supply.  There’s a 3.9kWp solar panel array on the south facing roof supplied by Sundog. Lighting is LED throughout. The house has a masonry shell and slate roof.

In the 12 months to June 2016, the owners used 2,845 kWh of electricity, costing £470. Over the same period, they generated 3,643 kWh, paying them £576.

This event is part of Cumbria Green Build Festival by Cumbria Action for Sustainability.
