Are you having difficulty selling or renting a property? Does your building have unattractive aesthetics or high heating costs?
A buildings envelope (curtain walling, windows, doors, cladding) is the barrier that ideally retains heat energy in winter (or keeps it out in summer). In poorly functioning envelopes, heating/cooling energy will be lost to the atmosphere at a higher rate than the loss from efficient envelopes. Over time, if a buildings envelope is not maintained, significant reductions in its performance will be observed.
Additionally, the cost of energy is going through the roof due to rising levels of demand, reliance upon fuel supplied from overseas, planned decommissioning of coal fired power stations over the next few years and nuclear replacements which are not due to be online until 2016.
The UK has been targeted with reducing its Carbon Emissions by at least 80% from 1990 levels by 2050. Maintaining and improving a building envelope therefore represents an increasingly important way of helping us get there.
