Part L – Conservation of Fuel and Power

zero carbon homes

Driving the reduction of carbon emissions in new homes, and working in alignment with the Code for Sustainable Homes, ADL2010 provides the framework for the delivery of new dwellings at a minimum of Code Level 3 in the UK.

The objective of achieving a 25% reduction on 2006 DER rates has an impact in all areas, including ventilation; however, everything continues to be brought together and delivered through SAP (Standard Assessment Procedure).

Regarding ventilation, SAP will use the new default settings for zero infiltration designs (<5ach @ 50Pa) and the use of SAP Appendix Q will continue to reward energy efficient systems specifically.

ADL2010 has also been published with an associated document: The Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide.
