What is a thermal bridge?
A thermal bridge, also called a cold bridge, is an area of a building construction which has a significantly higher heat transfer than the surrounding materials.
Its premise is that there must be a "river" that blocks the spread of heat.
For some houses, there is no external wall insulation at all, so the entire house is a good conductor of heat, continuously consuming the heat and air-conditioning of your air conditioner.
The existence of thermal bridge will not only cause additional heat loss, but may also make the inner surface of the outer wall wet, dew, and even moldy and dripping, also affecting respiratory diseases.while external insulation may not have this problem.
ecause the external thermal insulation avoids thermal bridges, under the condition of using the same thickness of thermal insulation material, the heat loss of external thermal insulation is reduced by about 1/5 compared with internal thermal insulation, thereby saving energy.
The quickest and most effective way to eliminate "thermal bridges" is to install integrated thermal insulation and decorative panels.
