Guides for LAs and HAs on Tackling Overheating in Homes

Post by ALEO Admin » Mon Aug 24, 2015 2:28 pm

The Zero Carbon Hub have published guides for local authorities and housing associations on monitoring and tackling overheating in homes.

For the last year the Zero Carbon Hub has been working with local authorities, central government departments and the housing and health sectors to understand how well prepared we are in England and Wales to tackle the issue of current and future overheating in homes.

Preliminary findings from the evidence gathering stage of the project were published on 16 June 2015 in a report titled Overheating in Homes – The Big Picture.

A second phase of the project, which aims to make recommendations about future policies and frameworks on overheating, began this summer.

The two guides, one aimed at local authorities and the other aimed at housing associations, are intended to raise awareness of the issue and summarises some of the steps that can be taken to address overheating in homes.

The guides can be downloaded from the following links:
