Thermal Comfort: A Natural Approach

One of the huge challenges facing social housing providers is the need to reduce fuel poverty amongst tenants, particularly in thermally inefficient, older properties. Much has been done to improve energy efficiency across the social housing asset base, but energy saving measures are only part of the solution to driving down bills and enhancing comfort. These should be combined with a fabric first approach to improving properties’ thermal performance, with heat retention in winter and resistance to solar gain in summer ensuring a comfortable indoor environment all year round.
