UK homes show faster heat gains

UK: A new study by home climate control company Tado has found that UK homes gain heat significantly faster than European neighbours on hot summer days.

The study, conducted in over 60,000 UK homes in the summer of 2021, found that a UK home with an indoor temperature of 20°C and an outside temperature of 30°C in sunny weather gains on average 5°C after three hours. Compared with some Western European neighbours such as Germany and Italy, UK homes are gaining heat more than twice as fast.

It also found a difference between the north and south in the UK. Whereas southern English homes heat up on average by 4.7°C after three hours, Scottish home temperatures rise by 5.6°C in the same conditions.
