It is beneficial for your home or commercial structure to be as energy efficient as possible. Buildings that lose heat easily through poor insulation cost more through energy bills, are therefore creating a bigger impact on fuel consumption and the environment and are more vulnerable to the damaging processes of cold and damp.
Nowadays, it is not only beneficial to have an energy efficient home but it is required by government standards. You may have seen many schemes available for free loft insulation or upgrades to your heating systems and these schemes are intended to get older structures in line with current regulations. New homes must adhere to these regulations from the offset so when involved in construction you need to use the right building materials.
Mona Precast are concrete block manufacturers who excel in producing concrete building blocks with a high thermal performance rating. This company is well versed in the Government’s new standards for energy efficient buildings. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive aims to combat climate change by making use of more efficient heating systems. Mona Precast manufacture concrete blocks with superior ‘U values’ to keep your home warm and compliant with the current energy efficiency standards. Their Full Fill concrete blocks have U values equalling 0.27w/m2k. In fact they have an entire specialist range of high energy efficiency insulating concrete blocks with varying levels of fill, insulation and attributed U Vales, so you can find the right concrete block for any application and energy efficiency level.
The energy efficiency of a building does depend on more than the materials used, you also need a modern and upgraded heating system but the materials used in the creation of a structure is the right place to start. If energy efficient methods are utilised at every stage of construction, the building will perform better overall. According to the experts at Mona Precast, it is likely that a wall “U” value of around 0.30W/m2k and below will be required for most structures. Meeting the “U” value of 0.30W/m2k is easy using Mona Precast thermal performance concrete blocks.
