Pioneering 'passive' home built in Island

Energy use cut by around 90%

Manx property developer Complete Construction Services and renewable energy company SNX Ltd claim they have built the most energy efficient house in the Isle of Man.

'Corvalla', on the Howe Road in Port St Mary, has been built in conjunction with a passive housing specialist, UK company Beattie Passive.

It's the first time the company's construction system ahs been used on the Island.

They say the building system used reduces energy demand by 90%, with the home being so smartly insulated, design efficient and airtight, that a traditional type of central heating system isn't needed.

The property's owner, Kevin Kniveton, says the property has surpassed all his expectations.
