Victory over the Cold Bridges

Victory over the Cold Bridges ⠀

1⃣ Connection of the wall with the window and the door ⠀
They are always one of the weaknesses through which heat leaves. The thermal parameters of windows and doors are much worse than those of walls. Correct installation and sealing of the gap between windows and walls is very important. After all, you need to not only choose the right glass and frame, but also install them professionally. ⠀

2⃣ Connection of the foundation wall to the floor ⠀
The floor of the first floor in energy-efficient buildings should always be insulated, regardless of whether it is heated or not. The thermal insulation of the walls of the foundation should be connected with the insulation of the walls in a continuous layer. And the thermal insulation of the floor should be combined with the thermal insulation of the bearing wall, so its energy efficiency is higher than that of the foundation wall. ⠀
In this case, the horizontal thermal insulation will be continuous, and not even the smallest cold bridge will appear, which usually appears at the junction of the foundation walls and the ground floor..

3⃣ Connection of the external wall to the roof plane ⠀
We have already devoted a whole post to this topic. The main thing is to maintain the continuity of thermal insulation. ⠀

4⃣ Balcony plates and other constructions ⠀
Many find these architectural elements attractive and functional. And there wouldn’t be anything bad if the most popular solution was not the reinforced concrete slab on which these structures are based. Because it is in this place that a "cold bridge" of great length arises. The harm caused to them is often compared with the effect of an insulated outer wall 4-6 m long (often half the width of the house) ⠀
The solution is: this element should be completely separated from the house. The balcony slab should rest on independent pillars. And then you can use any material. ⠀

To be continued. ⠀

Ordinary home or energy efficient?

Comparison History in Faces

The participants:
Alexey is the owner of a frame 2-storey energy-saving house (186 sq.m)
Dmitry is the owner of a house made without the use of energy-saving technologies - a timber-lined house, bricked. (152 sq.m)

💬 Alexey told us the story.

Once Dmitry went to Alexei and in a short dialogue it became clear the digital component of the monthly electricity charges.
Dmitry has a stone stove and since she can’t cope with heating, he put radiators under the windows. Its monthly expense is 8000 rubles.
⚠️ And now, attention: Alexey has not even 1,500 rubles, but 1406 for the same period!
⚠️ And this is January - the coldest month!

If you take, for example, February and March, Alexei’s consumption fell to 1200 rubles.
In November - 918 rubles. ⠀

How did our hero achieve such a result?

⠀- USP Foundation
- Warm water floor
- Proper wall insulation
- Heat storage system (1.7 cubic meters.)
- Competent orientation of the house to the cardinal points

🏰 Now imagine that you also have a stone house. Alexey compensated for heat loss (this is minus the skeleton). A building made of heat-ceramic reduces it to a maximum minimum.

> We also use a heat recovery system and a heat pump system.
> The need for their device determines the thermal calculation.
