Airtightness - evolved supplies

Research shows that up to half of all heat loss in buildings can be due to air leakage and uncontrolled ventilation. Insulation levels have increased substantially over the last few decades, but heated air is still escaping and can be pinpointed as a major source of energy loss.

We need to act now to reduce our energy consumption; around 50% of carbon emissions are from the built environment with approximately 50% of this energy used for space heating and cooling.

The climates of  the UK do not suffer from extremes in low temperatures, but are exposed to extremes in wind pressure. While insulation is central to low energy construction, air and windtightness must also be central to an energy efficient design strategy to reduce unnecessary heat loss.

The key is to ‘Build Tight and Ventilate Right’.

More central to all this is living healthily and comfortably. Heat that escapes from buildings carries a significant amount of moisture. This can lead to damage to buildings and building materials, and may have a severe effect on the air quality of the living space.

This is why pro clima develop a range of Intelligent diffusion open airtightness solutions to reduce the risk of condensation within structural elements and encourage vapour diffusion.

pro clima have been providing Intelligent airtightness and windtightness solutions for over 2 decades with their products used in some of the most airtight constructions in Ireland, the UK and throughout Europe.

Our pro clima product guide shows some key details and products required to build airtight and windtight buildings, reducing the carbon footprint of our built environment and making energy savings, leading to comfortable, healthy, low energy buildings.

pro clima products have been independently tested and approved by the Sentinel-Haus Institute to meet their stringent standards for healthy buildings with good indoor air quality.
