8th May, 2019

Glad you thought it was useful – Kostas really enjoyed meeting you all – here’s to lots of working together !

6th May, 2019

Nice to see our client’s Richmond project in @RIBAJ More information her

2nd May, 2019

We’ve had quite the reaction to @johnpalmer878 ‘s piece about living in his low energy home – any other unintended consequences @russelhayden @JurajMikurcik @BenAdamSmith @harrypaticas ? Already reducing impact on #ClimateEmergency goes without saying

1st May, 2019

Progress on an #mvhr system in Surrey where we did the M&E design and we’re also doing the #renewables – pulling it all together has really allowed us to focus on #performance

Check this one out, #energy consumption #data for our low energy retrofit in Chichester – EWI, solar, MVHR – we’ve got to start proving to our clients that this actually works, it’s as important as a photoshoot #energyefficiency #nobrainer

28th March, 2019

Brilliant – airtightness tape has many uses clearly

28th March, 2019

More #data – our #lowenergy #retrofit of this Victorian Terrace in Canonbury is further demonstration of improvement in #buildingperformance without compromising on aesthetics – this includes charging an #ElectricCar

25th March, 2019

Probably means that it is super-important that there’s an understanding of what this actually means and to ensure that it doesn’t get us all locked into bad/complicated methodology

25th March, 2019

.@russelhayden has been kind enough to send us his monthly meter readings demonstrating (quickly, cheaply & easily) #buildingperformance we’ve added this to our case study and think that data should be as important as pictures! #guesswhentheworkwasdone

22nd March, 2019

Chris spotted this on his site visit today… Do we even need to ask what’s wrong with this picture?

21st March, 2019

#SolarPV installation in #Hampshire, just finished yesterday – one of our last ones before the #fit ends, a true #UK growth story, many clients now showing willingness to install without subsidy, so maybe they worked, wonder why *certain* other subsidies still needed #renewables

19th March, 2019

Kaspar writes about investigating a problem with an #MVHR system in a #newbuild apartment block and what we would have done to ensure that issues just don’t arise

19th March, 2019

Some exciting news from team #Enhabit

15th March, 2019

Could have just called us – skills and expertise does actually exist @ftenergy

Congratulations @harrypaticas !

28th February, 2019

Spot what’s happening here #buildingphysics

26th February, 2019

Yes, but we can do something about it – research shows that mitigation strategies could work. Do something to make your home more #energyefficient, it makes a difference..

15th February, 2019

The great #NOx testing #experiment has begun – looking forward to seeing the results (white caps removed) – reviewing homes with and without NOx #filters #indoorairquality #mvhr #comfort

14th February, 2019

Some #mvrh commissioning today – we designed, suppplied, installed and now, commissioned – it’s the only way to ensure that it #performs

13th February, 2019

Massive congratulations @ClaraBagG #enhabithero

12th February, 2019

Reminiscing about our first project, which was also a deep #retrofit and a #passivhaus – check this out., especially how young everyone looks !

11th February, 2019

.@SarahEllenPrice has written about why co-ordinated #retrofit is the key to achieving building performance

31st January, 2019

We’ve had lots of interest in Chris’s latest blog – let’s make sure that we understand the impact of the #ventilation strategy we’re adopting on #comfort

20th January, 2019

We’ve got a post A recent training session got Chris thinking about how to #infiltration and #ventilation and the impact on comfort.

If there ever was an argument for taking control of your indoor environment…

18th December, 2018

One of the last installations of the year…pleasing level of organisation #gettingourductsinarow #mvhr #energyefficiency #indoorairquality

14th December, 2018

Baby it’s cold outside: -0.8 deg C, to be exact, incoming through the MVHR at 20 deg C – slightly high volumes (22W) as @johnpalmer878 now knows that his daughter’s spent the last hour in the shower #mvhr #energyefficiency #totalcontrol #MI6eatyourheartout

11th December, 2018

Following a recent meeting @SarahEllenPrice was surprised to hear that “no-one cares about the #performancegap” so she set out why we should #energyefficiency #indoorairquality #gettingwhatyoupaidfor

27th November, 2018

Patrick’s going to be speaking @cibse #Build2Perform tomorrow about our initial field testing into the impact of installing NOx filters. #AirQuality

23rd November, 2018

Our own @johnpalmer878 ….@enhabitfeed

23rd November, 2018

That’s us @enhabitfeed

22nd November, 2018

A very good example of how #passivhausperforms

20th November, 2018

Enhabit’s own Patrick Chester will be speaking about the results of NOx filtration assessment in central London homes with MVHR at @CIBSE #Build2Perform on 28th November – we have a few tickets available

20th November, 2018

This one’s a tight squeeze, but we made it! #mvhr #ventilation #indoorairquality #workinglatelastnight

19th November, 2018

Just finished commissioning this #MVHR system at a #yoga studio in SE London – designed, installed and commissioned, within 4 weeks! #ventilation #indoorairquality #goodconditionsfordownwarddog

13th November, 2018

That looks familiar!

9th November, 2018

Please take a look at this fantastic retrofit in Manchester – warm in the winter, cool in the summer, with fresh air all year around..

24th October, 2018

Look what we found on an energy survey – eek! #morethanonecauseofoverheating #buildingphysics #comfort

22nd October, 2018

This week’s @TheSTHome features tips on how to get your home ready for winter, including some thoughts from our very own @johnpalmer878 #firstgranddesignsnowthis #willbegettinganagentnext

17th October, 2018

Great campaign!

17th October, 2018

This is tomorrow!!

16th October, 2018
15th October, 2018

This is great, but there needs to be a plan of action to reach the targets, detail is what’s needed here – improve Part L, look at VAT for retrofits, stamp duty etc.. Date will then be meaningful

12th October, 2018

This issue is the reason why we exist – been looking back at some of the stuff we did to highlight and found this from years ago

12th October, 2018

Guess what we’re up to at this house in West #London #buildingphysics #poe #noguessinghere

11th October, 2018

Fresh from his @GrandDesigns fame, Patrick is speaking about how this and how it feeds into the delivery of a healthier home, that’s warm in the winter, cool in the summer and that’s very peaceful to live in. There’s a limited discount, use code SEAL25 for 25% off

11th October, 2018

Absolutely agree, surprised though at the failure to mention other benefits (might be reasons for failure) #comfort #health #cost #quality why’s everything about policy? Govt has repeatedly failed to take leadership here – industry also needs to step up

10th October, 2018

Workers in the construction industry are three times more likely to take their own lives than the average. It’s great to see firms taking action.. #WorldMentalHealthDay

9th October, 2018

Fantastic feature on women in construction in the @guardian

9th October, 2018

#Airtightness test, house depressurised, to demonstrate issues with an old property that we’ve been asked to make more comfortable – windows are double glazed PVC- not old, but frame has warped – will let the cold in, heat out and noise in #buildingperformance #whydoweputupwithit

8th October, 2018

Think you can’t do anything to respond to #climate warnings from the @IPCC_CH? Think again. This client lived in a draughty, cold home in N London. It’s now warm in winter, cool in summer, with healthy-fresh air & data INCLUDES use of electric car #dataspeaksforitself #nobrainer

8th October, 2018

PS @BBCRadio4 we think you mean 1.5 degrees, not 1.5 per cent.

8th October, 2018

The IPCC says dramatic action to limit #climatewarming is required, which we agree with – action to make homes more #energyefficient when you’re building/renovating isn’t that dramatic and will make a difference to comfort, health & value #nobrainer

5th October, 2018

Another commissioned #MVHR system, this time in W6. Client says: “I was impressed with Enhabit’s commitment to working out a solution that was right for us. The system met and exceeded our goals and is totally silent even on boost mode! We are now enjoying lovely, clean air”

4th October, 2018

Please do go and visit our certified #enerphit project at the Old Byres, it’s a beautiful home and a brilliant example of #passivhaus as a team sport – Richard, our client was instrumental in achieving the standard #energyefficiency

3rd October, 2018

Totally agree! We design and supply #mvhr #IAQ #energyefficiency

3rd October, 2018

Lovingly designed by our expert team of architects and engineers, project managed by our super organised..project managers & tested & commissioned by our site teams. We also supplied the #timberframe , #ashp and the #mvhr – very proud of #teamenhabit today

3rd October, 2018

Our exptert #airtightness tester, Patrick!

3rd October, 2018

That’ll be our timberframe system! And our @johnpalmer878

3rd October, 2018

An #Enhabit project on GD tonight! #itallstartswithenergyefficiency

3rd October, 2018
2nd October, 2018

This is amazing and annoying in equal parts – why’s it taken 55 years?!

2nd October, 2018

Design for this building began with #energyefficiency – we used PHPP as a design tool, project managed, supplied the #mvhr, #timberframe, #ASHP & #tripleglazing – helped to ensure high levels of building performance

20th September, 2018

Prob the neatest one we’ve done yet! #haveyougotabetterone #mvhr #IAQ #ventilation
