SUSTAINABILITY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY
• By investing in new technologies and making improvements to the materials

Passive house principles have been adopted to the highest standards at The Friary which future proof these homes and exceed all current building standards and regulations. The following features combine to create a greener home with superior levels of comfort and lower energy usage:
BER ‘A’ RATED ENERGY EFFICIENT HOMES
• The houses at The Friary boast a high A3-A2 BER rating (low energy, low carbon). This contributes to a significant reduction in the cost of heating the houses.
• Improved air tightness works together with the MHRV to retain heat, reducing heat loss and minimizes exposure to external elements.
• Masonry twin wall providing a warm home due to high insulation levels exceeding industrial standards reducing heat loss through floors, walls and roof.
• Thermal mass is used for passive heat storage.
• Solid plastered masonry walls between houses giving added sound insulation.
MECHANICAL HEAT RECOVERY VENTILATION (MHRV)
• Mechanical Heat Recovery and Ventilation System which is designed for 24 hour continuous exhaust ventilation of stale moist air from the kitchens, bathrooms and ensuites.
As the air is extracted a heat exchanger within the system transfers the majority of the heat into fresh air supply entering the living room and bedrooms. The benefits of this system are managed ventilation, reduced heat loss and less dust and pollutants as the
fresh air is filtered.
