Overall Conclusion
● Walls with higher CR i.e. that contain adequate C-values and Rvalues are preferred for minimising heating and cooling energy consumption in all of the climate zones. ● In many regions, the R-value of the wall system plays a significant role in reducing energy use. However, with sufficient C-value, minimal levels of additional resistance are required to achieve reduced energy consumption. ● R-value alone is inadequate to achieve desired energy consumption levels.

Overall Conclusion
● From a long term cost perspective, the optimal solution is to use a cavity wall, with face brick exterior and add only the insulation required for the specific building design and climatic conditions. ● In some cases, a well sealed air cavity will suffice.

Benefits of Roxul®Energy Saver Cavity Wall Insulation
● Contributes significantly to achieving a high home energy rating. ● Completely water repellent whilst allowing the cavity to breathe. ● Improves sound performance properties of the wall. ● Reduces heat flow through sun-prone walls in summer. ● Assists with thermal mass of cavity walls to provide greater winter comfort. ● Completes the building insulation envelope. ● Installed in existing walls easily. ● Made from 100% recycled material.
