H1 Energy Efficiency

sets physical conditions for energy performance, mostly through insulation & for some buildings also through hot water, lighting and HVAC systems

G7 Natural Light

requires habitable spaces to have adequate windows for natural light and visual awareness of the outside environment

E3 Internal Moisture

requires prevention of fungal growth & excessive moisture through insulation, space temperature, ventilation and disposal of overflow
