The power in passive homes, which can heat and cool themselves
A passive house should only cost up to €200 a year in energy bills, so while good quality materials are expensive, they do result in cost and energy savings
Building energy ratings, or BERs, are a compulsory part of Irish (Part L) building regulations. They’re not just handy when it comes to revealing how energy efficient (or not) an existing building is, but they set a bar when it comes to building efficiency, in that all new builds in Ireland must now be built to a minimum A2 energy rating.
