We spend much of our daily time indoors, and our home is one of them. For this reason, it is important that our homes are designed and built with the aim of promoting the well-being of its inhabitants.
What factors influence to get to have a healthy home?
The thermal insulator
A good insulation of the housing envelope implies benefits both in winter and in summer, and that is that the exterior walls, the roof and the screed must have a low thermal transmittance. An investment in these materials will mean great energy savings in the short term and its rapid amortization.
The weak point of the envelope of a house is found in the windows, so it is important to pay attention both to its components and design and to its correct installation. Its carpentry must be of very low thermal transmittance and its double or tripe glass, filled with inert gas. The glass must be "low-emissive" so that it reflects the heat inside the house in winter and keeps it outside during the summer.
The aforementioned materials (thermal insulation and windows) must be installed correctly, avoiding the so-called "thermal bridges", areas where unwanted thermal losses or gains can occur, due to a variation in thermal resistance.
indoor air quality
People and appliances generate heat. This heat is used by the ventilation system by preheating the clean incoming air before expelling the stale air. With this we will maintain excellent health conditions in our home (very important today).
If we take into account the application of the above, the amount of energy needed to thermally condition our home would be so small that with a low-temperature system, such as underfloor heating using Cecather electric foil, all expectations would be met to have our home. comfortable.
