FULL SIZED, FULLY FUNCTIONAL HOUSE BUILT WITHIN A LABORATORY
The Energy House is a unique research and testing laboratory and comprises an early 20th century two-bedroom terraced house within an environmental chamber allowing an accurate and rapid assessment of energy efficient retro fit technologies.
It is a traditional construction; solid brick walls, suspended timber floors and single glazed windows with a conventional ‘wet’ heating system fired by a gas boiler. The environmental chamber can be used to simulate a wide variety of weather conditions with a temperature range from -12°C to +30°C. The chamber is also equipped with rigs to simulate wind, rain, snow and incident solar radiation.
We have been carrying out insulation work fitting new products for testing in a full scale house in a laboratory at Salford university.
We install products which are then tested , the information passed on to government engery department.
We fully understand the need for air tight construction and well insulated properties.
