    Opposite of an AAV?

    Yes that's what it's says on their website.

    do it yourself Insulation

    If you used grey EPS slabs you would need about 280mm to equate to 200mm PIR. Don't know if you can hire equipment for blowing grey EPS beads.

    Any Tesla owners here?

    Isn't that the wrong way round? I quite like the look of the Kia e-Niro.

    Brexit ( sorry mentioned it )

    I agree and I'm an OAP. They don't all come back to the UK though, my brother who has lived in Teneriffe for over 25 years had both of his knees replaced over there and found the treatment excellent.

    Determining target u-values

    In practical terms not a lot really. You'll need downstairs heating at least even with triple glazing and good airtightness. In my experience from running PHPP with different U factors etc if you're in the south of England you'll need a U factor of very close to 0.1 W/m2K to not need a conventional heating system.

    Slower than tectonic plates

    Hi, welcome to the forum. Don't worry we've all been there and generally there's always an answer.

    Sunamp container bulging

    I've done a bit more digging and found this table which indicates there is a PV version, so is the UniQ dPV the version you have?

    Sunamp container bulging

    I've just looked at the Sunamp website and can't find any reference to the SunampPV. The only product they seem to be selling is the UniQ. So I presume all the old Stack, PV etc products have been discontinued.

    Solar Store - heat battery

    We visited Richard Hawkes PH around 2008 while it was being built and he had paraffin wax phase change panels in his walls.

    CRL underwriter declared bankrupt

    That's correct, the reason they gave was the warranty runs from when the house was weather tight. This was because the build was taking a long time to complete. I couldn't be bothered to argue, at that stage I had more important things to worry about.
  12. They removed our bungalow from the Valuation List once we had the electricity connection removed by the DNO. We used the disconnection documentation as evidence.

    The Build - Mission accomplished! We're in!!

    Superb, well done.

    Benefits of a thermal store?

    Our UVC is part of the Genvex Combi and is 185l. The water is heated by an EASHP which is built into the Genvex Combi along with the ventilation unit. There are only two of us in the house and we use water saving measures as much as we can. We have never yet run out of hot water. It doesn't sound as though 185 litres would be enough for your usage.

    Penzance Passivhaus

    Hi Murray, welcome to the forum. We have also built to PH standards using a novel wall construction. We use three electric towel rails to heat the house which is supplemented with warm air heating from a Genvex Combi 185. Is it possible to bench test the post heater?
