Code Built vs. People's House
Energy Consumption

How do these homes perform?

This collection operates using up to 88%* less heating energy than if these same plans were built to the NZ Building Code, and here's why. The People's House Collection has been designed and modelled to meet our eHaus Pacific performance standard. Creating a thermal envelope by ensuring there's a continuous layer of insulation that wraps around the building and using high performance joinery, this home is designed to maintain a constant minimum temperature of 20°C all year round. Some active heating or cooling will be required at certain times of the year.

*Heating energy savings based on PHPP model, using climate data for the Whanganui region.
