Statement in German in the end of this text Thermal comfort is reduced by exceptional temperatures (too cold or too warm), thermal asymmetry and draft. Thermal comfort is created by utilizing heating and AC systems as well as by building envelope. For heating and cooling systems component malfunctions are quite common. Regarding building envelope both […]

Aerogel means in this case sand particles full of voids of air. By combining this material with suitable binders the mixture can be applied like normal plaster except the lightness of it- density around 0.3 kg/dm3 allows much thicker layers than normal as single coating. Upon drying the lambda value is less than of EPS. […]
