 The NuTech Passive Solar House Concept is a little different. It was devised originally by Mark Forkin and Bill Quigley out of the design and systems used in the original Passive Solar House in Knocklyon. All of the technologies developed have been rigorously tested over the past 20 years.   In essence, the U-Values arrived at are a little higher in certain circumstances over the PHI values to ensure cost breaks are achieved and then this is compensated for by way of a larger solar array of Evacuated Tubes delivering energy into the HRV system even in cloudy weather (hence the reason for using evacuated tubes over flat plate collectors).   The thinking is that as insulation levels get higher and higher it is a clear case of diminishing returns which are, as mentioned, offset by the amount of energy delivered to heating by way of the solar array. NuTech are in full agreement that high levels of airtightness are essential. The reduction in Thermal Bridging is also vitally important as this has an enormous effect on the overall Heat loss Characteristic (W/K) of the house
