Below is a sneak peak at the ‘in-development’ screen-grab of the forthcoming Passivhaus U-value App:
We’re in the final stages of testing, all the code is written and is being beta-tested on devices; so far all the calculations for all conditions (where Rse and Rsi are critical) are working OK.

TeachPassiv.com are please to announce the imminent release of a new Passivhaus App for Apple iOS and Android.
The app is a U-value calculator using the Passivhaus methodology; it has been carefully written to ensure that the surface resistance values are in accordance with EN ISO 6946 for all conditions and can also take into account constructions below ground, unheated spaces and compensation for rain screen constructions.
