Energyflo's Dynamic Insulation



Dynamic Insulation: How it Works

Dynamic insulation is a 'fabric-first' insulation solution and differs from conventional 'static' insulation by converting the envelope into a heat exchanger.

In conventional building models, heat leaks out gradually through the fabric, be it a wall or a roof. Dynamic insulation captures these fabric losses and returns it to the building as pre-warmed ventilation air.

With dynamic insulation, the ventilation air for the building is drawn through building fabric insulation into the building (for instance) mechanical extract ventilation. As the air passes through the insulation it picks up conductive losses that would otherwise be lost to the building thereby pre-warming ventilation air.

As the speed of airflow moving through the product increases, the efficiency of heat transfer between the conductive losses and the ventilation air increases.

Dynamic insulation recycles the heat energy that is normally lost through the building fabric to pre-warm fresh ventilation air entering the building, reducing the space heating requirements and lowering energy consumption.

A low-cost, zero-maintenance technology, dynamic insulation is the ultimate “fabric-first” solution - in essence, no matter how low future standards push permitted U-values, Energyflo’s technology can “turbo-charge” any insulation to always deliver dramatically lower levels than standard ‘static’ solutions.

The main benefits of the revolutionary system are –

* Much lower U-Values per unit thickness.
* Used in private housing, social housing and commercial construction
* Used in walls, roofs and retro-fit
* Used in the standard 100mm cavity or 140mm stud
* Reduces build cost with lower U-Values in thinner envelopes
* Reduces fuel bills and carbon emissions
* Reduces space heating requirement
* Comprises ‘active insulation’ instead of normal ‘static’ products
* Meets standards for 2010 through to 2016.
* No need to change build footprint, building design or familiar building methods
