Bridging the Building Performance Gap

Currie, John; Stinson, Jon



Ayrshire Housing, in collaboration with the Scottish Energy Centre (SEC) at Edinburgh Napier University, have worked over the last 4 years to define the practicality of integrating energy efficient retrofit measures into a portfolio of hard-to-treat housing stock in the village of Dailly. The project sought to define the options for energy efficiency and mitigation measures into existing housing stock in order to work towards improved housing stock quality standards and reduce fuel poverty for vulnerable tenants.
Following this, Ayrshire Housing completed the installation of Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) to replace inefficient electric storage heaters in 33 of their 1950’s construction dwellings and funding from the SFHA Energy Ideas Fund supported a study by the Scottish Energy Centre in order to provide real-life in-use data of the ASHP systems’ performance for a variety of lifestyle groups over a 12 month period.
