What is thermal bridging? Well, to put it simply it is a bridge that heat uses to move through the envelope of your building (be it walls, floors, doors or windows…), between the inside and outside of your building. It is something building designers, architects, and home owners have been trying to eliminate for years.
Letting in the heat of a hot summer’s day, or letting the heat out on a cold winter’s night, because you haven’t addresses thermal bridging is not only ineffective, it is also draining your energy. It is costing you more in heating and cooling operation and making your building generally less comfortable.
Thermal bridging is found in the breaks of a building envelope and can be eliminated by effectively insulating problem areas and blocking or reducing the thermal transfer. By doing so you will achieve optimal thermal comfort and energy efficiency.
