Optimal indoor air and thermal comfort
A good indoor climate with generous daylight levels and provision of fresh air from outside is key to making homes healthy places to live in. A window is not like a brick wall, where the focus is simply on the ability of that wall to keep the cold out and the warmth in. Instead, windows can actually contribute more energy to the heating of a building than is lost through the window to the outside.
The VELFAC Housebuilding team can help you specifing the ideal combination of window and glass to maximise air quality and thermal efficiency of your Housebuilding project.
The primary factors to consider in low energy buildings are:
- The windows’ orientation in relation to the sun
- Sun screening and shading
- The glass ratio
- Installation methods and thermal bridges
- The number of windows and total window area
- Air tightness
