UK homes are increasingly at risk of overheating, which can lead to uncomfortable indoor environments for homeowners and residents. Overheating can be caused by poor housing design, uncontrolled solar gain, inadequate shading, and insufficient summer ventilation. Contextual factors such as external noise and security concerns can also restrict opportunities for natural ventilation. Hear from industry experts on the assessment tools, best practice design approaches and solutions available to minimise and mitigate overheating risk in homes.
