Mullahead, Co. Armagh
This low energy house has the advantage of being sited with the main views to the South East. The house is planned with all living accommodation to this side making maximum use of the passive solar gain. In winter the house is heated using an air source heat pump connected to low-temperature underfloor heating. This is powered by an offsite bank of photovoltaic solar panels. The superb energy efficiency of the house fabric combined with a large number of PV panels means that this house is net zero carbon.
