The importance of airtight building

People want their house to be comfortable, ecological, and a money-saving construction. Building a passive house, or energy-efficient home, is all about thermal insulation and good ventilation. Excellent controlled ventilation is only possible if the building is airtight. Air-tight construction is important because it ensures:

  • Preventing moisture problems, which means it is moisture tight
  • Condensation tight, meaning no condensation
  • Energy saving
  • Improving the comfort of living
  • Good soundproofing

Passive house relies on a small set of principles, such as super insulated envelopes, airtight envelopes, and advanced windows and doors.
