What is it really like to live in a Passivhaus Retrofit?

We thought that the advertised level of improved comfort of an EnerPHit home was probably exaggerated. However, since completing the works, we've been really surprised by the difference in quality of living EnerPHit provides. The comparison between living in an EnerPHit home and a building-regs level home is like the difference between living in a home with open fires and one with central heating. Not only is the house warmer, drier, cleaner and draught free, but the housekeeping chores needed to keep the house comfortable take a fraction of the time: We never have to wipe condensation off windows, laundry dries overnight on airers, smells vanish, and there is never any black mould anywhere. An unexpected benefit of maintaining a good air quality without having to open windows in summer is great for hay fever suffers.
