Jaga respond to Green Deal overheating concerns

09/07/2013 - by

Jaga has responded to new warnings by environmental experts that temperatures could rise to dangerously high levels in some homes insulated under the Green Deal scheme. A report uploaded to the BBC News web site on 8 July 2013 cautions that energy-saving measures designed to save energy during the winter months and protect the enviroment could actually pose a threat to inhabitants health during summer heatwaves. 

The concerns centre on the fact that heat can build up during the day and has nowhere to escape at night leading to poor air quality and a greater risk of heat stress for the occupants which in the most extreme cases could potentially lethal. 

Jaga Heating Products UK Managing Director Phil Marris responded to these concerns today urging both the administrators of the Green Deal scheme and the concerned experts to look again at the benefits of combining low mass, responsive heating with demand controlled ventilation which offers night-time free cooling.
