The effect of thermal bridges
- Higher energy consumption
Due to the thermal outflow at the balcony connection, heat is drawn from EVERY ROOM resulting in a significant rise in heating costs and energy consumption.
Interior temperatures of the adjacent rooms can drop well below the dew point. This leads to condensation, deteriorates plaster and paintwork and is an ideal condition for harmful mold formation! If there is sustained exposure to condensation, the building is subject to serious deterioration.
- Uncomfortable living space
Cold surface temperatures cause uncomfortable living space for occupants.
Schöck Isokorb® are load-bearing thermal insulation elements which forms a thermal break between the balcony and the interior floor while transferring load and maintaining full structural integrity. Also, the warmer interior temperature is maintained decreasing condensation, and preventing the formation of mold.
