Advantages of the sprayed polyurethane in the Passivhaus construction

To achieve maximum energy efficiency, which is a prerequisite for obtaining the Passivhaus certificate, not only is thermal insulation of the enclosure essential, but so is water-tightness, which is a basic premise of this standard. Polyurethane is the most...

The nightmare of thermal bridges

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

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...
