…comfort and a high degree of well-being while optimizing costs and saving energy? To achieve this, it is essential that the aspects related to thermal building physics are considered at a very early planning stage.
Compliance with the German Building Energy Act (GEG), as well as a deliberately optimized use of the building, requires an early inspection of the building envelope and how it interacts with the technical building equipment and with advanced sustainable energy concepts.
Moisture protection plays an important role, specially in existing buildings and in the protection of historical monuments, but also in new buildings. Condensation can cause damage, such as mold and mildew stains. To construct a damage-free and hygienically safe building, it is therefore important to evaluate and optimize the moisture behavior of the building in addition to energy efficiency.
