Research of the British Residential Building Designs and Energy Conservation
As the British has a cold and rainy climate, which is variability, its relatively high energy efficiency standards has been set up. Energy efficient building in the United Kingdom in the technical measures three main areas: 1) use of structural measures to raise the walls, roof and windows of the thermal insulation properties; 2) the use of solar energy; 3) improving the heating system. Currently the United Kingdom to promote passive solar house without external mechanical action, heat-absorbing insulation materials of construction for the media, the use of natural cold and hot air exchange, to the use of solar energy.
