What Are U-Values?

U­-values (also known as ‘heat transfer coefficients’) are a measure of how effective a building element (such as a wall, floor, roof, etc) is at preventing heat from transmitting between the inside and the outside of a building. The lower the U­value, the less energy is required to maintain comfortable conditions inside the building. U-­value requirements are part of meeting Building Regulations. Our buildings are designed to be high performance. High levels of insulation and quality features such as double, triple, and argon­filled glazing ensure low U-­values, all the way to passive house standards – like we’ve achieved on our show home.
