MHCLG commissioned a research project, completed in 2018, to investigate overheating in new homes. We are currently expanding on this initial piece of research and officials are consulting with industry experts. We will present our plans for tackling overheating in new homes as part of our forthcoming consultation into the energy efficiency and ventilation standards of the Building Regulations later this year.
