Ventilation Methodologies and their application
Ventilation solutions have developed considerably over the decades. However, as properties have become more airtight, this has led to the onset of issues such as overheating and onset of mould and condensation – issues can easily be prevented through effective ventilation measures.
This CPD outlines ventilation methodologies that can be adopted to prevent such issues, highlighting why they should be adhered to, and solutions that can be adopted. Sound design, installation and commissioning practices are discussed, along with practical maintenance and control guidance, to ensure continuous delivery of good indoor air quality.

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
