York architect Phil Bixby has eco-refurbished his Victorian end-terrace house, retrofitting the existing structure to a high standard of insulation (including fitting triple-glazed sash-lookalike windows) and creating two new single-storey extensions each to Passivhaus-standard levels of performance and with green roofs. Attention to airtightness means whole-house mechanical ventilation with heat recovery can work efficiently, and the resulting energy requirements are sufficiently low to allow simple electric heating. A substantial photovoltaic array (including novel use of the south-facing gable wall) and battery storage mean the overall energy requirements can be efficiently provided for by a mix of solar and off-peak electricity. The house has now been occupied for nearly two years and hence there is useful feedback on how all the systems operate.
