The nightmare of thermal bridges | Synthesia Technology

Thermal bridges reduce the thermal resistance of the elements that form the building envelope. In addition to energy losses, a thermal bridge implies the risk of condensation and the presence of mold in winter.

Robust thermal insulation to ensure the building's energy efficiency

Energy efficiency is the key feature of a sustainable building and consists of achieving a design that guarantees a reduced energy demand over time.

The optimal thermal insulation of the envelope plays a fundamental role, together with the closing of gaps.

Thermal bridges in passive houses | Synthesia Technology

Passive houses must meet high demands in terms of thermal insulation and airtightness. By creating an envelope as linear as possible, we can avoid unwanted air infiltrations. To achieve this goal, it is necessary to pay attention to the sensitive constructive points...

Airtightness in nearly zero-energy buildings and the Passive House standard

Airtightness is an important requirement for energy-efficient buildings, but it’s not the only requirement. An optimal insulation together with airtightness complies with the passive house standard. Why shouldn´t an insulating material that guarantees thermal...

Air tightness in passive houses: closed-cell sprayed polyurethane foam

One of the main technical criteria of a passive house involves ensuring the air tightness of the enclosures that form the envelope.

Imperfections in the building envelope, in the form of holes or cracks, can cause a large number of problems, particularly during the...
