Overheating CPD

Urbanisation, Density Planning Restrictions and the development of more challenging sites has seen the rise of overheating issues in buildings rise significantly over the past few years.

Where new homes are required to meet high quality and insulation levels, the need for effective ventilation and cooling strategies are now crucial to comfort and well-being and to meet planning guidance and regulations.

This CPD will explore the reasons for overheating, thermal modelling examples and the benefits of using ventilation and cooling to combat overheating in homes.Learning Objectives

  • What is overheating, why is it occurring and what are the implications?
  • Regulations and Guidance surrounding overheating in homes e.g TM59
  • Importance of thermal modelling with examples utilising ventilation
  • Ventilation solutions to combat overheating

Specifying MVHR in the design of High Code Level & PassiveHaus properties CPD

Specifying MVHR in the design of High Code Level & PassiveHaus properties

With Building Regulations calling for increasingly airtight homes, and fuel prices rising, effective and efficient heat recovery ventilation is vital.

This heat recovery ventilation CPD explains everything you need to know about heat recovery in order to successfully specify it in high code level homes and PassiveHaus projects.

All of our CPD courses are free of charge.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the key principles of heat recovery ventilation and how it works
  • Learn about what constitutes a High Code Level and PassiveHaus building
  • Understand what heat recovery ventilation is needed
  • Identify which features are necessary in order to achieve compliance with High Code Levels or PassiveHaus
  • Be aware of best practise when specifying heat recovery ventilation for domestic properties

Zehnder Radiant Heating & Cooling CPD

The ability to economically heat and cool buildings whilst also considering the environment impact is important; even more so in large spaces such as offices, warehouses, sports centres, retail outlets, schools and hospitals where energy usage is high.

The Radiant Heating and Cooling CPD examines the energy-saving technology further and explains the benefits the system can offer.

All of our CPD courses are free of charge.

Learning Objectives

  • An understanding of heat and how it works
  • How resultant/perceived temperature affects us
  • The features and benefits of radiant heating
  • Comparisons between radiant and convective systems
  • How radiant panels are made
  • Their performance and the applicable specification
  • Basic system design considerations
  • An understanding of good and bad practices
  • The concept and technicalities of radiant cooling
