Leave a comment

Our next public open home will be this Sunday the 11th of October, 1-3pm.

Tours starting at 1:15pm and 2:15pm. Please RSVP to hello@idealhouse.org.

We will post additional dates for the next couple of months soon.

We have had our sensors up and running now for a couple of months, and it’s great to see the data for what we’re experiencing in the home. I’m amazed by the low humidity levels compared to outside, and the fact that our Zehnder balanced heat-exchange ventilation system takes care of¬†additional moisture from the bathrooms without any additional (direct) extraction. Humidity primarily is sitting between 50-60% inside, and 70-90% outside.

Temperatures as you would expect are sitting primarily between 20 & 25 degrees C, with some variations when we’re away, or when we occasionally lit the fire over winter. Apart from that, there is no additional heating in the home. The garage is interesting (blue line), as it’s sitting nicely between inside (the thermal envelope) and outside – a good transition area.
