Moisture and breathability – the key to building performance and healthy buildings A joint event with The Alliance for Sustainable Building Products and supported by STBA, SPAB and ISIBIO.   Buildings should be considered not as standalone discrete entities, but as part of a system in constant and dynamic interaction with people and the environment. This interconnectedness means benefits, problems, solutions and consequences cannot be effectively addressed in isolation.

Dämmstoffe sind aus dem Baualltag nicht mehr wegzudenken. Ihre Einsatzgebiete reichen von der Fassadendämmung bis zu Spezialanwendungen in der Versorgungstechnik. Nichts desto trotz wird gegenüber Dämmmaßnahmen vermehrt öffentliche Kritik laut, die den Anschein hat, dass sie sich hauptsächlich auf Fassadendämmung mit Wärmedämmverbundsystemen auf Polystyrolbasis konzentriert. Die vorliegende Analyse setzt sich deshalb aus Sicht der Bauforschung mit dieser Kritik auseinander. Sie betrachtet diejenigen Themen, die immer wieder diskutiert werden: Sind Dämmmaßnahmen wirtschaftlich?

Home Energy Rating System (HERS) raters are trained to assess the quality of insulation installation, using a three-grade approach developed by RESNET. Grade I is the best, while Grade III the worst. Understanding between the different grades of the quality of the installation of the insulation is necessary to properly rate the quality of the installation of insulation.

We spend up to 90% of our lives indoors. Yet the air quality inside buildings has been shown to be 2 to 5 times poorer than outdoors. This can also true for modern energy efficient buildings due to increased insulation levels and greater air tightness.
