A number of concerns have arisen regarding summer overheating in UK low-energy homes; it is often assumed that overheating is caused by high levels of insulation and airtightness which can cause concerns for those planning to build a Passivhaus. In this Masterclass, Passivhaus experts Mark Siddall and Nick Grant will explore the causes of summer overheating and provide tools and guidance to help deliver buildings that don't just minimise overheating but deliver excellent summer comfort. Working with built project examples and PHPP, the event will cover basic theory, practical details and evidence from case studies and personal experience.
