In the UK today there are approximately million dwellings, 36% are solid wall construction, a total of some million homes. In addition to heat loss, there are additional problems of risks to health from cold. They are more prone to condensation and black mould, hence solid wall properties have become known as “Hard to Heat Homes”. the risk of surface condensation and mould growth. The test of the economic feasibility of an energy efficiency measure is to calculate if the measure achieves a payback of the initial cost within 15 years through energy savings.

More than one-sixth of our dwellings are traditionally-built, with solid walls and tried-and-tested materials and Internal Surface Temperature to Avoid Critical Surface remove excess moisture to prevent condensation and mould growth and to .

While the infrastructure industry is an important pillar of economic growth, the region has broad priorities and tapping into alternative financing creates an opportunity to reduce the pressure on its’ fiscal positions allowing more flexibility to allocate spending to other socioeconomic areas and provide better infrastructure solutions such as efficient project delivery, provisions for.

This Digest considers the circumstances that lead to surface condensation and mould growth, and suggests ways of reducing their incidence in dwellings of traditional construction. As stated in BRE Digest Surface condensation and mould growth in traditionally-built dwellings (), “Condensation is always the result of air becoming saturated when it meets a cold surface, but the conditions under which it may occur in dwellings vary considerably.

Broadly speaking, condensation is dependent on three interacting.

The condensation season promoted by cold weather is already upon us, together with surface condensation and mould growth.

The main results of the KTP project showed that inadequate ventilation was the main cause of mould in the studied dwellings, combined with a poor thermal quality of the building.

The test of the economic feasibility of an energy efficiency measure is to calculate if the measure achieves a payback of the initial cost within 15 years through energy savings. This is calculated by dividing the cost of implementing the measure (not the whole cost of the project) by the annual.
