EnerPHit is the gold standard of performance for existing buildings. James Traynor’s practical guide provides architects and designers the tools to retrofit our existing buildings. To meet the target of reaching carbon zero by 2050, or much earlier, building owners across the UK will be required to upgrade buildings to adhere to increasingly stringent energy performance requirements. Nearly 20% of UK carbon emissions are attributed to the heating and cooling of buildings. By tackling inefficient stock, both carbon emissions and fuel poverty can be addressed, while providing improved thermal comfort and a healthier environment. The guide offers clear methodology and case studies to improve current buildings for future use.
