You might decide that you want to choose your heat source technology based on project-specific factors, like budget, preference or simply the space you have available. If this is the case, one route to Approved Document L (ADL) compliance, would be to prioritise the reliability and longevity of your fabric, by specifying higher efficiency insulation.

This approach could be particularly relevant to bespoke builds, as it allows more flexibility to select the heat source technology that best suits your design.

Below is an example ADL-compliant recipe*, showing one way this approach could be applied:
