RDD 69. Draught Reduction Measures to Improve a Buildings Thermal Performance 

There is a shortage of empirical data on the actual benefit of draught reduction in the residential sector. This research will provide measured data on the effectiveness of draught reduction measures on a single dwelling, measuring the thermal performance, reduction in energy usage and improvement in thermal comfort of a sample of buildings following the application of several low-cost, draught reduction measures such as draught stripping floors, chimney balloons. The results of this research will be published and disseminated amongst building professionals, policy makers and other relevant players.
