Overheating in homes - Ventilation & Cooling Strategy

Urbanisation, Density Planning Restrictions and the development of more challenging sites has seen the rise of overheating issues in buildings rise significantly over the past few years. Where new homes are required to meet high quality and insulation levels, the need for effective ventilation and cooling strategies are now crucial to comfort and well-being and to meet planning guidance and regulations.  This CPD will explore the reasons for overheating, thermal modelling examples and the benefits of using ventilation and cooling to combat overheating in homes.

Learning Objectives

  • What is overheating, why is it occurring and what are the implications?
  • Regulations and Guidance surrounding overheating in homes e.hg TM59
