There is no doubt: Improved indoor air quality has a significant positive impact on wellbeing and health. It helps to increase cognitive performance, and leads to a better night’s sleep.

Was sind die Grundlagen für wohngesundes Leben?

Die Forschungsergebnisse zeigen, was berücksichtigt werden muss, wenn Sie ein gesundes Haus bauen möchten.

Insulation first

Good insulation ensures a balanced interior climate and improves the overall living comfort.

An uninsulated brick house needs 2.5 times more energy in comparison to an insulated one*. In other words, in an insulated house you need only 40% of the actual energy costs.

* With reference to the outer walls with same roof and floor insulation.

Solidity counts

Thick walls serve as an energy regulator. Houses with good insulation and thick walls save energy best and equalise short-term temperature fluctuations optimally. It does not matter whether we are talking about hot or cold days.

Of course, there can be different needs for different projects:

  • Ziegelmauerwerk und Putz sind optimal zur Raumklimakontrolle
  • Beton und Putz sorgen für eine gute Schallisolierung und Schutz gegen Elektrosmog
  • Massivholz ist gut für die Raumakustik und zur Regulierung des Raumklimas

Interior values

Klima interior plasters with 1,5 cm thickness make a significant contribution to regulating air humidity of interior walls and reduce the development of health-damaging organisms. People feel most comfortable with air humidity ranging between 40% - 60%.
