Whole house approach

LETI Climate emergency retrofit guide, How existing homes can be adapted to meet UK climate targets, published by LETI in October 2021, defines the whole house approach as: The concept of treating the whole house as a system when planning a retrofit and thus ensuring that any action taken does not preclude another action at a later date. It also means that actions which may affect other aspects of the dwelling’s performance are properly considered to ensure that they do not result in any unintended consequences.’
