Does any have a suggestion for good internet resource to understand U-values for different materials, combining, etc.
My physics 101 course was ages ago and I want to be able to use EcoDesigner to its maximum.

You'll want to use the INT resources as a starting point (there is no pre-defined UK data). See:

And, you can customize the xml files for your needs:
