SAP Calculations


Kingspan Insulation's Technical Services Department can produce accredited SAP calculations
Accredited Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) calculations are undertaken on request. They can be carried out on receipt of adequate information as detailed in current Building Regulations / Standards. SAP calculations can incorporate NHER certificates if required and can be supported with a full report.
 
The calculation takes into account a range of factors that contribute to energy efficiency:
  • the materials used in the construction (thermal mass);
  • the thermal insulation of the building fabric;
  • detailing at junctions (linear thermal bridging);
  • the level of air tightness of the building;
  • the heating and hot water system and controls;
  • the ventilation system used in the building;
  • the amount of low energy lighting;
  • the fuels used to provide heating, hot water, ventilation and lighting; and
  • the glazing type and orientation (solar gains).
