H&V News August digital issue is online now

With Boris Johnson now installed as prime minister, this month’s issue considers key outstanding priorities that the HVAC sector may hope to see addressed

An entirely new Cabinet now leading the government under the leadership of prime minister Boris Johnson. The HVAC sector is now hoping that some answers may be near with regard to addressing the challenge of decarbonisation and better building safety.

With an uncertain Brexit remaining a key priority for government, August’s H&V News finds the building services sector concerned over a similar lack of clarity on how it will be expected to meet the challenge of eliminating or offsetting carbon emissions from all UK homes by 2050.

Another focus of this month’s edition looks at concerns of regulatory shortfalls concerning indoor air quality and ventilation standards that could pose major risks for overheating and occupant health in UK buildings as a result of increasingly hotter summers.

A range of ventilation and engineering experts have told H&V News that Approved Document F of the Building Regulations is in urgent need of an overhaul to introduce clear targets focused around IAQ and limiting pollutants. These targets should be based on World Health Organisation guidelines, the experts have argued.
