P1.1.4 Heating and insulating buildings P1 Lesson 13 U-Values
a U-values measure how effective a material is as an insulator. Know what a U-value is and what it tells us about the material as an insulator.
b The lower the U-value, the better the material is as an insulator. Be able to evaluate the effectiveness of different types of material used for insulation, including U-values and economic factors including payback time.
c Solar panels may contain water that is heated by radiation from the Sun. This water may then be used to heat buildings or provide domestic hot water. Be able to evaluate the efficiency and cost effectiveness of methods used to reduce ‘energy consumption’.
