Arquitectural and energy rehabilitation
99% of Spanish households suffer unnecessary energy loss due to poor thermal insulation. The main loss of this energy occurs in the facade and roof. That is why proper thermal insulation will be essential to achieve optimal levels of comfort and significant energy savings.
Although insulation is the main factor affecting comfort and energy saving, it is not the only one. HVAC systems are also responsible. Often in homes, there are situations of thermal discomfort. Most times the stratification of temperatures can occur within different rooms.
The quality of the air we breathe in our homes is also very important as it directly affects our health and well-being. The best way to improve the quality of the air is to install a heat and energy recovery ventilator that allows the recovery of some energy from the air conditioning in the interior of the houses through a system of controlled mechanical ventilation, this guarantees a constant renovation of the interior air for 24 hours a day. This, in turn, saves you money at the same time.
This ventilation system continuously extracts the stale air from the kitchens and bathrooms and introduces fresh air from the outside to the rest of the rooms (bedrooms, dining room, living room, …), acting as an outdoor air exchanger with the indoor air without mixing. This way, in winter, the energy released by the indoor air serves to heat incoming outside air causing less effort by the heating system to reach the set temperature resulting in greater energy savings. In summer, the system works in reverse: the internal air helps to cool the outside air entering the system.
The heat and energy recovery ventilator have filters that retain pollutants and considerably improve the quality of the air we breathe in our homes. These filters may be special for certain allergenic particles such as pollen or dust mites.
If you are interested in reducing the cost of your energy bill and increase the comfort and welfare of your home contact us and we will propose a budget and an energy report of the rehabilitation of your home to assess the convenience and return of your investment. If you wish, we can also include the rest of the remodeling jobs that you need (bathrooms, kitchen, bedrooms, distribution, installations, …) offering you our service of interior design and decoration. Remember that an energy-restored dwelling increases its value in the market by approximately 20%.
Example of building energy rehabilitation
The first thermography shows an uninsulated or poorly insulated building. The energy that radiates from the inside escapes through the facade and windows. The temperature of the facade is approximately 7 °.
The second thermography shows the same building once the rehabilitation works consist of the hyperinsulation of the facade and substitution of windows. In this case there is virtually no energy loss from the façade and windows. The temperature of the facade is approximately 4 °, very similar to the outside.
