Thermal imaging helps detect thermal bridges and air leaks. Here’s a shot of thermal imaging from our Modular Passive House project. ⠀
.⠀
In this instance, it’s clear that there are no air leaks. However, the plumbing does create some often unavoidable thermal bridges.⠀

How does your house perform?⠀

If you are a #builder or an #architect here’s a detail you will want to become familiar with. In order to improve the R-Value or Insulation, we applied a pressure treated shelf that is flashed with zip tape to the sill plate. This shelf will allow exterior insulation to rest on top. The goal is to create a “jacket” around the entire building envelope. In standard 2x6 construction, the studs act as a thermal bridge, and are a weak point in the envelope. By installing the insulation on the outside of the building, we are creating a continuous insulation barrier.

The 7 Secrets To Building Your Sustainable Home That No One Tells You - Part 5: Minimising thermal bridges and air-leakage.

Imagine it is winter. You wake up in the morning, put on your favourite hand-knitted wool socks and walk to the kitchen to have breakfast. But something is different today, your left toes are cold, you start to shiver and feel uncomfortable. What happened? The fabric on the toes has worn-out, there is even a little gap. The socks that used to keep your feet warm and cosy have a leakage and they are not able to keep you warm any more.

The same principle applies to a house. The building envelope’s task is to protect its occupants from the environment and to keep them warm. The building envelope needs to be a continuous shell, each little breach will negatively influence the overall performance and reduce the insulation’s potential benefits. Read more in my latest blog post.

kadawittfeldarchitektur has built a modern energy efficiency center on the campus of Hochschule Niederrhein in Mönchengladbach, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The zero emission building is constructed to Passive House standards which require thermal bridge free design, superior windows, ventilation with heat recovery, quality insulation and airtight construction. More on the blog. 📷: Andreas Horsky.

Just because you can't see it, doesn't mean it isn't there! Thermal bridging can have a big impact on your building's thermal performance and from May 1st 2020 it will need to be accounted for in all thermal computations.

We are using this product on a few of our projects right now as part of a continuous insulation system to help reduce the cost of heating and cooling a building by eliminating thermal bridging. Very cool👌

This perfectly illustrates why using dot and dab to place plasterboards is a terrible idea. The dark splodges are the dabs holding the boards on. They create a #thermalbridge to the cold outside wall.⁠
Air can pass up the back of the boards creating #thermalbypass and the whole wall ends up losing more heat.⁠.

We have recently made the transition from the old insulation standard AS 4859.1:2002 to the updated standard AS 4859.1:2018, ahead of the transition deadline. The updated standard includes amendments to the way in which rigid foam insulation is aged tested and statistically averaged, the outcome of which is typically a derating of most insulations' R-Value. To learn more about how this will impact our products and the construction industry in Australia, follow the link in our bio.
