eHaus sets the bar for energy efficiency
Energy efficiency is woven into the fabric of eHaus using the worlds most powerful design tools. By building energy efficient homes, we make a big impact on how well you live, and only a little impact on the world you live in.
Smart design keeps New Zealand beautiful
Every eHaus takes a significant step towards preserving New Zealand’s rich beauty by using at most, 25 kilowatt-hours per square meter to heat your home over a year. The result is phenomenal. Only a quarter of the energy is needed to give you the unprecedented comfort of eHaus while preserving up to 90 percent more energy and thus, the rich outdoor spaces we all love.
German tested, eHaus approved
It’s not just the Porsches, Mercedes and BMWs. Germans are the world’s gurus when it comes to engineering energy efficient homes as well. They can predict a building’s energy consumption down to plus or minus 0.5kWh. And we can too. German engineering has been adopted and adeptly woven into eHaus to infuse your home with 20+ years of German passive house intelligence for energy conservation that is simply undeniable.
Comfort comes first
Although the brain of eHaus lies in the calculated energy performance, the heart of eHaus lies in the comfort. They say you can’t measure love, but with eHaus we use energy science to give you internal temperatures that feel amazing during the summer and winter months and use almost no heating or cooling equipment. We believe that comfort shouldn’t be a hypothetical idea, but a physical priority.
Every detail analysed
Wall and roof framing, framing junctions, and high-conductance window frames are examples of heat-leaking “thermal bridges”, and typical homes are full of them. Although they’re small pieces in the overall building puzzle, eHaus doesn’t cut corners on the road of innovation. All designs are scrutinised with thermal bridge software during the early stages of development to ensure no elements of eHaus will act as a highway for heat transfer and thus, energy loss.
eHaus works hard, so you can breathe easy
Not only does eHaus need almost no heat to stay warm, it is optimised to capture any heat energy that is trying to escape. With energy recovery built right in, you can go about your day knowing eHaus’ ventilation system is silently capturing and reusing 84% of the heat that would otherwise be wasted. Our energy recovery system works seamlessly with eHaus’ intelligent construction to enhance your living environment with a constant supply of freshly filtered outside air, optimising everyday health.
