Ensuring Good Pipe Performance in New Builds or Extensions
What are the main considerations to keep in mind when it comes to good pipe performance?
What should you know about underfloor insulation when installing piping into extensions or existing properties? When doing extensions or any new build, part of the building regulations is having insulation in the floor construction.
In this video, Martin discusses checking the underfloor insulation value to ensure good pipe performance after your installation. You see, it’s common to staple the pipework to the insulation.
But older properties may not have insulation within that floor construction. The reason why you need to look at the insulation value is because you want to make sure it’s stopping the downward loss of heat. The better your underfloor insulation is at stopping heat from escaping, the better pipe performance you’ll get from your installation.
