Energy House 2.0

Last week Thermal Surveys NI was invited over to University of Salford in Manchester to tour the £16m project where 2 houses of the future have been constructed and monitored all within all within a huge environmental chamber. This chamber can recreate a wide variety of weather conditions including wind, rain, snow and solar radiation with temperatures from -20c to +40c. Various heating, ventilation and insulation products will be tested and monitored over the next 18months+ all with a view to how buildings of the future can move towards the low carbon efficient homes that are needed….

A fascinating trip and a glimpse of the future….
