Energy Efficiency and Historic Buildings, How to Improve Energy Efficiency, Published by Historic England in 2018, defines unintended consequences as: ‘Outcomes – often undesirable – that are not the ones foreseen. For thermal upgrading works, this might include creating conditions for condensation to occur where previously this was not the case.’
