Wärmebrücken können an unterschiedlichen Stellen der Gebäudehülle auftreten und dort erhöhte Wärmeströme, niedrigere Innentemperaturen, Feuchte und Schimmel probleme sowie größere Transmissionswärmeverluste verursachen. Die Transmissionswärmeverluste führen zu höheren Heiz- und Kühlenergiebedarfswerten und werden u.a. besonders wichtig bei sogenannten Hocheffizienz- oder Niedrigstenergiegebäuden. Das EU Projekt ASIEPI hat nationale Informationen zu Wärmebrücken aus bis zu 17 EU-Mitgliedsstaaten plus Norwegen gesammelt und analysiert.
