Why build an airtight house?

thumb Ampack Logo 4c 300dpi

Airtight building practices are fast becoming the norm and the benefits are many. Without an airtight envelope, your building is not as efficient or safe from damage as it could and should be. Comfort Solutions Ireland will work with you to achieve a suitable level of airtightness and to ensure that your building performs as good as it should.

The Ampack, market leading 10 year warranty covers the cost of removal of all affected material, as well as the replacement of all damaged materials should any part of the airtightness system break down.

Airtightness is suitable and equally necessary for both domestic and commercial applications and we can help you with both.

Passive House

"Passive house" is an ultra efficient building standard that saves up to 85% on your heating bills and ensures your house is always at an indoor temperature of 20deg C with an extremely high level of air quality.​ Originating in Germany, "PassivHaus" is a completely proven concept and is suitable for any climate or location, including Ireland. Despite popular belief, it is not expensive to build a Passive House; when compared to a well built house which complies with current Building Regulations; in fact the difference should only be 5 - 10%.

Comfort Solutions Ireland General Manager, Fergus Mc Manamon, is a fully qualified Passive House Consultant and is ready to help you achieve your dream of a highly efficient home with superior air quality. To find out more about Passive House and its principals, please contact us or click here now.
