Types of Construction for Thermal Insulation


Thermal insulation should minimize heat loss (or gain) allowing energy savings to be made, provide a comfortable environment for occupants, and protect a building from damage that might be caused by sharp temperature fluctuations (in particular, condensation). Heat exchange – by thermal convection, conduction, radiation and water vapour diffusion – cannot be prevented, but its rate can be reduced by…

How to Use Solar Energy for the House (Area)


Solar energy is available free of charge to every building. Unfortunately, in many climatic areas, solar radiation is very low, so other forms of energy must be used for room heating, hot water, lighting and for the operation of electrical appliances. Fortunately for those who live in areas full of solar radiation, they can utilize solar energy to meet the…

What is The Comfortable Room Temperature?


Base on architectural, air room temperature of 20 – 24 °C is comfortable both in summer and in winter. The surrounding surface areas should not differ by more than 2 – 3 °C from the air temperature. A change in the air temperature can be compensated for by changing the surface temperature (e.g. with decreasing air temperature, increase the surface…

The Comfortable Room Climate


In the same way as the Earth has a climate, the insides of the building also have a climate. A room’s climate consisted of measurable values for air pressure, humidity, temperature, velocity of air circulation and ‘internal sunshine’ in the form of radiated heat. To create a comfortable room climate, the factors above must be held with efficient control. Once…
