Many construction projects always have one thing in common – the energy infrastructure is key. The guidelines are clear: less CO2 emissions, better lifetime and improved climate protection, all achieved through both intention and action. The influence of insulation on efficiency and cost savings should be quantified and considered in every decision.
A new calculation tool has been launched in order to provide detailed answers to these questions.
