OUR OFFER

We at New Era Homes pride ourselves with quality workmanship. We understand the challenges that are involved from Design, Planning to Construction. We believe that continuity is vital in the Passive House Build. We have the same construction team employed on ALL our builds. With NZEB Standards fast approaching it is vital to incorporate passive design with the use of Passive House Planning Package Tool (PHPP) to ensure delivery of construction to the highest standard.

Why Choose Passive

There will be many tough decisions to make during your projects, but to target the passive house standard for new builds makes perfect sense

5 key advantages of building to a passive standard:

High Comfort Levels, Winter & Summer

The value of comfort is quite hard to explain. People have become used to living in drafty houses. But once you have visited and experienced a passive house for any length of time, you will quickly understand from the light and airy environment, with no cold surfaces even temperatures, superb air quality, what real comfort is!

Energy Efficiency

Lets face it it’s time to be getting away from the reliance of fossil fuels! We need to be investing in tomorrow, today, for the benefit of future generations and build our houses as energy efficient as possible.

Air Quality

we spend on average 90% of our time indoors! So of course, you want to be breathing the freshest air that you can! By installing a mechanical ventilation system into your home, you are in control of the internal environment and will enjoy the benefits of always breathing pure filtered air, as well as controlling humidity levels and not having to worry about mould and condensation.

Low Running Cost

There is no getting away from the fact that in typical irish houses, space, heating accounts for a very high percentage of the over all running costs. This is because there is so much heat lost due to uncontrolled ventilation (drafts) and seeping out through cracks and gaps from construction. The essence of the passive house is that by creating an air tight environment and by proper control of ventilation will typically run on 90% less energy.

Quality Assurance

This can often be overlooked in construction terms. The difference in what is designed and drawn up on paper against what is actually constructed, this is what is known as “the performance gap”. This is where, the rigorous passive standard comes in to its own. Stringent design of every element of the house is backed up with document and certification together with discipline of trade personnel and continuity ensures a quality build and guaranteed performance levels!
