Thermal bridges are weak points in the thermal envelope. They can bring to additional heat losses and to low inner surface temperatures, which results in a higher risk of mold due to surface condensation. Thanks to a thermal bridge calculation, these weaknesses are analyzed and optimized as part of the detailed planning.
Furthermore, the detailed thermal bridge verification leads to an improvement of the overall building energy balance in agreement with the EnEV-Certificate procedures. This enhancement can optimize the insulation thickness and achieve renovation measures in an economically efficient way.
