‘Whole life’ costing takes account of the total cost of an item over its life, including durability, energy savings and maintenance, as well as initial purchase price.
The Kingspan KoolDuct System reduces the capital and life cycle costs when compared with galvanised sheet steel, whilst, at the same time, offering additional advantages to the specifying engineer, the architect, the M&E contractor, the fabricator, the facilities manager, the property developer and the building owner.
Kingspan Insulation commissioned independent consultants, Sweett (UK) Limited, to carry out an analysis of the capital and life cycle cost benefits of differing HVAC ductwork specifications.
The research showed that:
- installation of the Kingspan KoolDuct System can save over 15% on capital cost; and
- over a 30 year life cycle the Kingspan KoolDuct System can also make a saving of over 29% on operating costs.
