Heating and cooling are the main energy consumers in buildings and account for two thirds of a building’s total energy consumption. However in some buildings, most of this energy is wasted due to inadequate insulation. In most cases well-proven energy efficiency techniques, can be cut 70 to 90 % of a building’s energy need for heating or cooling.
Polyethylene Pipe Insulation
Climaflex pipe insulation is the UK's leading brand for polyethylene pipe insulation. This is the grey foam that most people are familiar with, the kind you would traditionally find in garden centres for example. Polyethylene is the cheapest, widely available product in the market. People very often wrongly assume cheap means poor quality, this is not the case with a brand such as Climaflex. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/m.K at 0°C which is broadly equal to that of any other flexible foam, and it also has a much higher "μ factor" than other foams, making it more resistant to moisture ingress. These facotrs make it ideal for use around the home, being easy to work with and providing good insulation.
