Set to be officially announced later this year and brought into effect in June 2022, the changes to Part L will introduce new targets for the conservation of fuel and power and specifically, guidance on improving the efficiency of the building envelope. These changes are set to pave the way for the implementation of the Future Homes Standard which aims to ensure that all new homes built from 2025 will produce 75-80 per cent less carbon emissions than current housing stock. This means that architects and self-builders need to future-proof their designs now to be compliant with the changing regulations.
With a focus on a ‘fabric-first’ approach which looks to improve the thermal-efficiency of the building envelope in terms of walls, floors, ceilings and roofs, insulation is set to play a huge part in meeting the new requirements by creating sustainable self-builds and helping homeowners save money, and energy, when making improvements to their existing properties.
Insulation Superstore offers a range of over 3,500 different insulation products, which includes a variety of types and materials to suit an array of applications and budgets -from traditional insulation boards and slabs to versatile multi-foil products and solutions designed to provide additional benefits such as fire protection and acoustic soundproofing.
