Hazard 2 - Excess Cold

This hazard covers the threats to health from sub-optimal indoor temperatures.

The percentage rise in deaths in winter is greater in dwellings with low energy efficiency ratings. There is a gradient of risk with age of the property, the risk being greatest in dwellings built before 1850, and lowest in the more energy efficient dwellings built after 1980. Absence of central heating and dissatisfaction with the heating system also show some association with increased risk of excess winter death.

Vulnerable Group: All persons 65 years or over
