HONE Heat, Power & Drive System
This installation is a standard HONE Heat, Power & Drive package for a new build home and comes with a built in electric car charger. In Ireland, this HONE package is becoming extremely popular with the new regulations on nZEB starting March 31st 2019, the banning of tail-pipe vehicles (petrol, diesel, hybrid) from 2030 and the planned introduction of carbon taxes on homes that use fossil fuel. This project was originally designed as an A3 rating with completion due Dec 2018 but the homeowners were concerned it would be out of date with building regulations changing so soon. They switched from a heat pump (electric heating) & solar to a HONE HPD system which uses no fuel. The install cost worked out the same. The big impacts were to their energy rating which is now an excellent A1 and has exceeded nZEB requirements.
