Solar building study. Summary report. Spinney Gardens [Crystal Palace, London]

Technical Report:

Abstract

A summary report is given of the performance of a two-storey terraced house with passive solar heating features. Total annual fuel use of 10896 kWh compared very favourably with that of a well insulated double glazed design. Fuel used for space heating was 80 kWh/m{sup 2}/year. The energy performance was substantially influenced by solar gains. Without such gains gas use for space heating would have been 30% higher. The solar performance was not at the expense of occupant comfort, for there was little reported overheating, due to the adequate isolation of the conservatory from the living areas. Although very comfortable the building was most valued for its character, which was strongly influenced, both indoors and out, by the conservatory. At Pound 518/m{sup 2} GFA (71m{sup 2}) (2nd 1/4 1989) Spinney Gardens, with a conservatory, was estimated to cost more than a comparable traditional house Pound 506/m{sup 2} GFA (64m{sup 2}) without a conservatory.
