Building comfort for old age: Designing and managing thermal comfort in low carbon housing for older people

This briefing by a multi-institutional team, led by Professor Simon Guy, provides a summary of the findings derived from the project 'Conditioning Demand: Older People, Diversity and Thermal Experience'. The research looked at energy consumption and thermal comfort in domestic settings, including extra care housing, to understand the implications of these trends and make sensitive recommendations on improving the domestic thermal experiences amongst older people.
