ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF BUILDINGS

  1. Need for thermal insulation of buildings

In its thousand-year history, the humanity has always understood the buildings it built as a means of protection from the adverse effects of the natural environment. The surrounding elements of the building (roof, walls, floor, windows) create conditions in its premises to create a certain microclimate, the parameters of which correspond to the sanitary-hygienic and technological requirements.

The main functions that the thermal insulation of the surrounding elements of the building must perform can be formulated as follows...

The facade separates the building from the external environment, providing protection from climatic conditions. It is a significant visual element in architecture. It is the facade that determines the final character of the building structure. Not only should we take into consideration the aesthetic aspect when choosing a facade system and exterior design but also the climatic conditions in which the building is located.

Waterproofing prevents potential damage from the action of water or moisture to the building, providing long life, a comfortable and safe environment. The ingress of water into the structure reduces its load-bearing capacity, causes corrosion of the reinforcement and/or concrete. Besides that, making its way into the building, water poses a risk for the development of microorganisms.
