Title: Improving ventilation in housing

Ref Code: GR21

Abstract1: Without enough ventilation, homes suffer from condensation. Central heating, making windows and doors more airtight, sealed double glazing and sealing of chimneys and flues have made it necessary to change the way existing houses are ventilated. Changes in the way new homes are ventilated have been reflected in updates to building regulations. Refurbishment gives an opportunity for improving ventilation in existing housing so builders and householders need to be aware of the guidance in local building regulations. This Good Repair Guide explains the changes to Approved Document F1 and gives advice on avoiding problems.
