Hi all i am really keen to get great sound and heat insulation, searching on here if I see many have timber frame or other construction methods. I was wondering what the best way if achieving good results with a brick and block construction? I dont really have extra space for thicker floors or walls to pad it out with extra insulation, maybe there is higher spec material I can use etc? any way tips are massively appreciated
As the title suggests I'm trying to work out where the happy medium in relation to the target u value/s and air tightness for my new build. We're about to have our initial design meet with our designer and I want to have some u values in mind to specify. I very much want to adopt a fabric first approach using block and brick and have already had thoughts around specifying thin joint aircrete for the inner skin and a tetris insulated floor. My question is, at what u values for the different elements (walls, floor, roof, windows etc) do you get the most bang for your buck? I know this could be quite subjective and is dependant on my house size and budget, but I want to target that sweet spot before costs get silly for minimal improvement over and above that spot. Cost effective is key. Further details on request. Thanks in advance
