Highlighting energy infastructure: new Insulation Calculation Tool goes live

Share this Post:

Many construction projects always have one thing in common – the energy infrastructure is key. The guidelines are clear: less CO2 emissions, better lifetime and improved climate protection, all achieved through both intention and action. The influence of insulation on efficiency and cost savings should be quantified and considered in every decision.

A new calculation tool  has been launched in order to provide detailed answers to these questions.


"We understand that many users are not engineers, planners or specialists in thermal energy systems. And in the same way we believe that everyone has a right to thermal comfort, we also believe that the knowledge about the saving potential of that comfort is a fundamental prerogative for the local expert to provide” says Simon Delaunay, Digital Strategy director at Thermaflex.


The tool is a simple, easy-to-use, and reliable efficiency calculator which is an essential tool for insulation professionals. Providing detailed installation information of pipe insulation in heating, cooling and refrigeration systems offers valuable insights that are comprehensible to customers in order to back their decision-making process in the best and most concrete way possible.

With this calculator, all you need to do is to choose your preferred insulation material and within just a few clicks you will know what it means for your energy bill, now, and over the systems lifetime. You can even request a calculation of your return on investment and directly download every calculation result.



In addition to basic insulation insights, a PRO calculator has also been developed with more specification options. It offers designers the ability to make their own calculations – independent from existing standards. Here, of course, further details of variables are required. Currently, the calculator is being further developed to allow calculations for a combination of both tube and sheet material to serve the requirements for both very thick insulation or large diameters.
