In the Government’s response to the Environmental Audit Committee’s enquiry into heatwaves we committed to consult on a method for reducing overheating risk in new homes. This will be part of the Government’s consultation on the energy efficiency and ventilation standards of the Building Regulations. We intend to consult on any proposed changes later this year.
