The largest environmental benefit provided by Val-U-Therm comes from the savings in energy that it can deliver. Studies show that a typical home built to building regulations costs over £1,500 a year to heat. A similar home built using Val-U-Therm technology can cost a mere fraction of this to heat - typically less than £100 per year.
This exceptional thermal performance can deliver massive reductions in fossil fuel use and corresponding reductions in the emission of global warming gases and other pollutants. This is reflected in the fact that Val-U-Therm can help a developer achieve an ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificate in a cost-effective way.
Because Val-U-Therm provides such a high level of insulation it removes the need to install complex and costly heating systems. What’s more, an investment in Val-U-Therm wall, floor and roof panels will last for the entire life of the building - unlike renewables that need to be controlled, require frequent maintenance and, often, wholesale replacement during the lifetime of a property. In contrast, the Val-U-Therm system is a Fit and Forget, Fabric First solution.
Val-U-Therm is an inherently sustainable product due to the careful sourcing of low-impact raw materials. This is shown by the fact that the timber frame and insulation technology used in Val-U-Therm can deliver an "A/A+" BRE Green Guide Rating (depending on the cladding used).
The BRE Green Guide Rating is part of the BRE Environmental Assessment Method, an accredited environmental rating scheme for buildings. It provides a straightforward answer to which specifications within an element group have the lowest environmental impact. Those with A+ ratings have the lowest possible overall environmental impact.
