Buildings, Energy and Thermal Comfort

  • Glazing position and size according to climate
  • Overhangs in sun-prevalent direction
  • Movable shadings (controllability is key)
  • High insulation materials
  • Additional layers
  • Renewal of equipment to higher-efficiency products to avoid unwanted thermal gains
  • Blockage of unwanted apertures: sealing materials (note: minimum air flow must be maintained to guarantee indoor air quality)
  • Minimisation of amount of external-facing surface joints
