Meet Requirements for Building Regulations! — May 30, 2017

Meet Requirements for Building Regulations!

Fitting the Thermahood Will Help To Meet Requirements For Building Regulation 2.3;
C2 – Condensation
L1 – Fuel Conservation (Insulation And Air Leakage)
E1 – Sound Protection

Reduce Heat Loss
Reduce Draughts
Improve Air Quality
Reduce the Risk of Condensation

Improves air quality in living areas by reducing the air flow
Works in tandem with heat recovery systems (controlled air flow)

Missing insulation & these heat loss highways contribute to other problems in the home that very difficult to value;

C2 – Condensation – Air-leakage and draughts can contribute to condensation, created when warm & cold air meet or created in Kitchen or Bathroom, this can cause rotting timbers & roof damage – damp, condensation and mould have links with health risks!

L1 – Fuel Conservation (Insulation And Air Leakage), requires loft insulation to be continuous, Air-leakage is reduced and tested via air-tightness testing. Thermahood Downlight Covers can really help with this where appropriate.

Part E – Resistance to passage of Sound – Untreated downlights do not help to resist to the passage of sound, using Thermahood over downlights will help to meet these requirements!

Thermahood Downlight Covers block heat loss highways! — April 4, 2017

Thermahood Downlight Covers block heat loss highways!

Thermahood Downlight Cover - Black

Thermahood Downlight Covers block heat loss highways created when fitting downlights!

Downlights can add a lot to the aesthetics & ambience of our homes!

However we pay very dearly for this character!

We pay for lights & the fitting of the lights, also the Lamps (bulbs) and the electricity to run the lights!These can be 50w lamps with 6, 10 or even 20no per room and seldom less than 4 per room.

But that is not all, because these downlights are a very weak point in the fight against heat loss!

Downlights can reduce the effectiveness loft insulation by as much as 30%

 

Additional cost of downlights!

Missing insulation & these heat loss highways contribute to other problems in the home that are very difficult to value;

Condensation created when warm & cold air meet or created in Kitchen or Bathroom, can cause rotting timbers & roof damage – damp, condensation and mould have links with health risks!

Part E – Resistance to passage of Sound!

Untreated downlights do not help to resist to the passage of sound!

Insect infiltration, flies, spiders, creepy crawlies are drawn to light and can then make their way into your home !

Dust contaminating air quality, and the health issues associated with this!

Thermahood – Stop air and dust infiltration!

Thermahoods blog

Air & Dust infiltration could be causing a lot of problems in our homes, including unwanted draughts and poor air quality. Unwanted draughts can be uncomfortable and costly but also the often forgotten problem of dust infiltration. These draughts can be carrying dust particles from the loft where downlights create an easy path for this infiltration.

The effects of this poor air quality can lead to a number of ailments such as headaches and respiratory illnesses including Asthma. It is estimated that in the UK 1200 people die each year because of Asthma, that is more than 3 people per day.

Thermahood downlight covers can help reduce air dust infiltration through downlights – http://www.thermahood.com/Info/
