Energy saving house
Annual specific consumption of heat for heating:
Consumption of energy saving houses does not exceed 75 kWh/(m2a) of heat per year. Their energy consumption fills the gap between conventional constructions and low-energy houses. Such houses save 30% of energy compared with conventional constructions.
Principles of an energy saving house:
- it is heated by a conventional heating system for gaseous, solid or liquid fuels.
- There is an effort to preserve a convenient layout of individual zones for living and sizes and orientations of windows.
- It shows good thermal insulation parameters of all jacketing structures (peripheral walls, windows, floors and ceilings). The desired heat diffusion U of the peripheral structure is from 0.25 to 0.30 W/(m2K).
- it is ventilated conventionally using windows.
