Detail

This report identifies the main gaps in the literature on overheating in homes, and recommends areas where further work might be of most value.

The analysis has been carried out on behalf of government by a consortium led by AECOM, and supported by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College London.

It is the second project output, the first being a literature review covering whether overheating is occurring in new dwellings, in existing dwellings and whether or not retrofitting/refurbishing existing dwellings is likely to increase the risk of overheating.

The findings and recommendations in this report are those of the consultant authors and do not necessarily represent the views or proposed policies of the Department for Communities and Local Government.
