Overheating issues in homes is a growing concern due to factors such as Urbanisation, density planning restrictions, insulation levels and the development of more challenging sites and given the risks climate change brings the issue is only going to get worse.
Combining ventilation with active cooling can offer a low carbon solution to overheating issues in residential properties and can be designed in conjunction with dynamic thermal modelling.
In most instances, a mechanical ventilation system such as MEV (Central Extract System) or more likely MVHR (Heat Recovery) forms the base of the strategy for overheating. This can then be adapted accordingly to ensure compliance with best practice guidance (CIBSE TM59).
We have a range of energy efficient ventilation solutions that can help support the mitigation of overheating in homes on your new or existing building project.
