Thermocill has independently been tested by researchers at the Energy Savings Trust, University of Manchester and University of Salford. 

  • Report#1: Experimental data from Salford Energy House 2.0 (https://energyhouse.salford.ac.uk) conducted by the University of Salford in 2019 and published in 2020. This study has rigorously tested Thermocill in the flagship Energy House and assessed the performance of Thermocill in terms of heating up time, amount of energy required to reach thermal comfort, U-values of windows, heat losses through glazing etc.

  • Report#2: Analytical calculations and energy modelling of a 3-bedroom semi-detached house with the aim of assessing the effectiveness of Thermocill in reducing moisture/condensation around windows and estimating the annual energy and CO2 emission savings as a result of installing Thermocill. This study was also conducted by the Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering at the University of Manchester  (https://www.mace.manchester.ac.uk/).

Some of the main findings from three independent studies are as follows:

  • Energy Consumption: Energy needed to heat up a room is reduced by up to 14%

  • Reducing Effective U-Values and Heat Loss: Thermocill reduced the U-value of the glazing unit and the heat loss by up to 3% (confirmed by the University of Salford).

  • Reducing Heating-up Time: Rooms heat up quicker by up to 23% faster (confirmed by the University of Salford).

  • Reducing Household Energy Bills: The estimated energy savings in a typical UK dwelling (3-bed semi-detached house) is approximately 10% of the total heating (gas) for the whole house per annum or approximately £46 (confirmed by the University of Manchester).

  • Reducing CO2 Emission: The estimated CO2 emission savings in a typical UK dwelling (3-bed semi-detached house) is approximately 210 kg (confirmed by the University of Manchester).

  • Reducing Condensation: The estimated drying rate around window frames and glazing (in terms of vapour pressure) for the ‘Optimised Thermocill Design’ is 92% higher than that for the case without Thermocill (confirmed by the University of Manchester).

All the above claims have been verified by the 'Energy Savings Trust'.
