Improving Thermal Efficiency

BCS Preservation can improve thermal efficiency for property preservation throughout the UK

Properties with solid walls lose around 45% of their heat through walls. These properties are usually referred to as "hard to treat" when it comes to insulation, as the options have previously been limited to either expensive external cladding that changes the appearance of the building, or internal lining systems that alter the room dimensions.

BCS Preservation's Thermalogix treatment is a unique and inexpensive alternative that can be used to increase the thermal efficiency of such buildings.

Applied externally as a single-coat of cream that will last for 20 years, Thermalogix is a specially formulated cream that penetrates deeply into the walls and reduces the amount of moisture they can absorb. A dry wall conducts much less heat than a saturated (wet) wall does, therefore more heat will be retained within the property as less is transferred out through the walls.

The cream has been formulated to line the pores of the masonry rather than block them, so vapours can still pass through the building fabric allowing it to "breathe."

When applied the cream is white, however within 48 hours it will have penetrated deeply into the walls leaving no discolouration, residue or sheen.

Tests carried out at two leading UK universities have revealed that the treatment can save a large amount of a property's annual heating energy that would normally be lost
