Summary:

  • Passivhaus buildings are often described as cosy-warm winter comfort, free of draughts, condensation and worries about heating bills.
  • However, a number of concerns have arisen regarding summer overheating in modern UK homes;
  • Additionally it is often assumed that overheating is caused by high levels of insulation and airtightness which can be misleading.
  • 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.

Key topics:

  • Ticking the regulatory box or aiming for excellence
  • Summer ventilation in detail
  • Case studies – Practical solutions and examples, single homes and flats
  • PHPP tips and tricks for stress testing your design
  • Addressing operational issues
