01 Thermal Efficiencies

EWI Pro systems not only improve the look of the property; they also vastly improve thermal efficiency, resulting in lower energy bills.

Energy Saving and EWI Pro

With ever-increasing energy prices, and in today’s environmental climate, insulation is essential. EWI pro systems can be retrofitted onto the building, and have time and again solved the problem of solid wall properties; our systems can easily bring the thermal efficiency of the building fabric up to the highest of standards.

The thicker the insulation used in the external wall insulation system, the bigger the energy savings. Our most cost-effective external wall insulation system uses EPS as the insulation material. The table to the left illustrates the required thickness of different insulation materials when looking to achieve specific U-values.
