Defining Overheating Leaflet


This leaflet provides an introduction to the range of overheating definitions and thresholds in use in the Housing sector and also by health professionals. It is based on work carried out by the Zero Carbon Hub over the past two years as part of a large-scale project on ‘Overheating in Homes’, and draws specifically the detailed evidence review, ‘Defining Overheating’ authored by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), ARCC, University College London (UCL), and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM)
