    Penzance Passivhaus

    Hi guys, thanks for your quick responses... I've attached a copy of the post heater schematic... Nothing too exciting.... We haven't been able to bench test the heater because it requires airflow to function.. Brink suggested we run it at high speed to test, but it should work at low speed anyway?! It appears that the temp sensor in the heater limits its use and the airflow sensor oscillates between on and off... Our electrician tested it and watched the thing cycle... Not sure what to do next?

    Penzance Passivhaus

    Hi guys, Just joined this group. Just finished building a Passivhaus in Penzance, Cornwall. My friend and I built 2 houses together, one for each family on a challenging plot chasing the passivhaus dream... We've been in the house since end July and just seeing how it copes with our first winter! So it's a timber. Frame design, sitting on a concrete raft (on 30cm insulation!) planned using the PHPP software to conform to PH standards. So it's super insulated, airtight (0.3ac/hr) no cold bridges, triple and quadruple (skylights) glazed with Brink MVHR system (ubbink plastic duct and plenum). My friend developed the wall buildup himself to achieve the PH standards without us having to buy premade PH timber frame sections, saved us a lot of money... Biggest struggle so far, trying to get the. Brink post heater to operate... It's wired up correctly but won't operate, even at high fan speeds...? Which is really why I joined this forum, to hopefully glean some info as our supplier hasn't solved it (or Brink at this stage!) Cheers.. Murray
