Recticel’s U-value calculator produces the right results for thermal envelope projects

Recticel Insulation has developed an online U-value calculator that’s free to use and enables users to complete their own U-value assessments at their convenience.

Correct U-value assessment not only aligns with best practice principles, it could be the difference between success and failure in terms of building compliance with current energy regulations. It is also essential to creating comfortable homes that are cost-effective to run, and less impactful to the environment.

As a company committed to improving construction standards for a better-built, more sustainable environment, leading PIR insulation manufacturer, Recticel Insulation, has developed an online U-value calculator. This free initiative allows users to complete their own U-value assessments at their convenience. The resulting data assists the building process by helping the user select insulation that demonstrates a good level of performance – a crucial step to fulfilling a successful fabric-first design approach and achieving EPC compliance.

There is unprecedented focus on the energy performance of the UK’s property stock. Net zero will not be achieved if thermally deficient properties remain the biggest contributor to the country’s overall emissions output. It has put the onus on building stakeholders including contractors to employ all the innovative tools at their disposal to maintain a consistently high level of performance and provide the energy compliant homes the country – and the environment – needs.
