This report represents an update of the BRE guide first produced in 1989 and extensively revised in 1994. It explains the risks in meeting building regulations requirements for the conservation of fuel and power when thermally insulating roofs, walls, windows and floors. It suggests action which can be taken to reduce the risk of failure, and includes a short section on the interaction between thermal insulation, ventilation and heating in the building as a whole. The information represents BRE's recommendations on good construction practice for homes and other buildings; and also covers the conversion and upgrading of existing buildings. Each section ends with a list of quality control checks for use on site.
