Your home’s lifespan can be extended with Alumasc’s insulated render systems.
Reduced heating costs
By installing External Wall Insulation (EWI), heating costs are reduced by as much as 40%, due to improved energy efficiency. An average solid wall semi-detached home could save around £475 per year on fuel costs (according to the Energy Savings Trust). This increases with greater insulation thicknesses. Heating systems will not need to be on as long or as often. The effects will also be felt in the summer months, with properties being less susceptible to temperature fluctuations.
High performance renders and/or brick effects enhance the appearance of properties and are available in a wide range of textures and colours. They provide the opportunity to create a distinct new look or they can be used to remain in-keeping with the surrounding environment and other properties.
The weather-resistant, protective qualities of insulated render systems, along with the thermal upgrade they provide, ensures the life of the building is increased. It is strongly recommended that the EWI system selected is fully certified by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) and offers a life expectancy rating in excess of 30 years. The system should also be recommended for use by the Energy Savings Trust.
Reputable EWI systems are applied by installers that are fully trained and carded by the system manufacturer. Fully certified systems are covered by warranties for up to 25 years, which provides peace of mind with respect to both their application and performance. This is fully compliant with the requirements of The Green Deal – an energy-saving improvements initiative.
The energy-saving improvements depend on your home. For latest information on funding opportunities for EWI installations, visit the GOV.UK website: www.gov.uk/green-deal-energy-saving-measures/overview
