|Abstract: ||The paper discusses the state of solid wall housing in the UK, and the technical and
socio-economical challenges that need to be addressed whilst refurbishing this stock.
The challenges of improving the thermal performance of the envelope and of reducing
space heating-related carbon emissions in solid wall housing are discussed together
with issues related to thermal comfort, the ‘take-back’ process and user-appeal.
Preliminary results of the Householder Survey of Project CALEBRE are presented,
including the sample selection and survey processes. It is concluded that, irrespective
of cost factors, the perceived benefits and aspirational appeal of carbon-reducing
technologies need to outweigh the cost associated with disruption from the
perspective of the householder. Achieving this, places demanding requirements not
only on technologists and designers but also upon those responsible for marketing
essential energy saving solutions.|
