Energy Efficiency of R8+?

Now, more than ever before, energy efficiency is one of the most important considerations when choosing building materials to use in homes and all forms of building construction.

As can be seen from the above diagram, the largest area of heat loss is through uninsulated walls.

This has therefore been our main area of focus.

The top priorities for energy efficient buildings is to be able to keep actual energy consumption low whilst decreasing the loss of heat from a building during winter, and minimizing the entry of heat during the summer months.

Architects and builders are excited about our Energy Brick because it is able to easily achieve these energy saving objectives.

Most of a home’s energy consumption is spent in heating and cooling the interior, so one of the most important steps is to try and minimize these requirements.

The Green Energy Brick provides a continuous, unbroken layer around the building envelope and ensures airtight walls with the highest in energy rating performance.

This allows for the purchase of much smaller sized heating and cooling equipment. With smaller equipment comes less initial outlay, and less ongoing costs.

Advances in modern technology have produced light weight, super energy efficient, yet stronger materials that can out perform many of the traditional construction materials.

Let's review again the R rating comparisons below and you will again be impressed with the Energy Brick's performance!

Standard Clay bricks..............................................................R0.078
Double brick with air space between........................................R0.316
Weatherboards.....................................................................R0.086
190mm hollow concrete blocks................................................R0.19
Double 90mm hollow concrete blocks with air space in between...R0.44
Cellular concrete with a density of 1,600kg/m3..........................R0.115
Cellular concrete with a density of 320kg/m3.............................R1.19
Green Energy Bricks...............................................................R8+

Our unique Energy Brick, gives the look and feel of brick construction and yet vastly improves the energy rating of homes with their massive R8+ energy rating, and so provides the very best in energy performance, in any climate.

Whether in the far reaches of Northern Australia, in the middle of the desert, or in the Southern parts of Australia, the Energy Brick meets the exacting requirements to minimize the use of artificial heating and cooling in a building, therefore saving you money!

An energy-efficient home is one that lowers energy bills and helps cut heating and cooling costs while enjoying more consistent temperatures in your home, all year round.

Choosing the correct wall construction material makes all the difference regarding energy efficiency, so make sure it is the Energy Brick from Green Energy Bricks.
