England Regulations have been released (15/12/21) and Scotland & Wales are currently under review. It is the intention that the updates ensure adequate ventilation of all types whilst the energy efficiency of housing is improved at the same time. As the saying goes, ‘Ventilate when you Insulate’.
This is all part of the Government’s proposals for the Future Homes Standard, which provides a pathway for highly efficient buildings that are zero carbon ready, better for the environments and fit for the future. Implementation of a full technical specification is scheduled for 2025. There are also proposals being discussed to mitigate against overheating in residential buildings.
Titon welcomes the increased emphasis that has been put on ventilation in both new and existing buildings as per the Building Regulations update, particularly in the current climate.
