The non-profit organisation Zero Carbon Hub has published a new report warning of the risks of overheating in energy-efficient homes. Previous to the introduction of the Government’s zero carbon homes target, with its strict implementation of building standards and energy saving devices, “Overheating in Homes: The Big Picture” highlights the unforeseen dangers of eco-homes which are designed to cut emissions and reduce winter heating bills but often have life-threatening internal temperatures of over 25˚C in the summer months. The report also warns that this issue will be further exacerbated by the effects of global warming, citing the 2003 heatwave in Northern France when temperatures soared above 40 ˚C, resulting in the deaths of 15,000 people. Groups highlighted as being particularly vulnerable to heat-related deaths are the elderly, obese, infants and those with chronic illnesses.
