A goal for all seasons. Choosing high-performance windows is important for winter heating and summer cooling of environments, avoiding heat loss from inside and infiltration from the outside.
What is meant by thermal insulation of a building? It means building a building, starting from a rational design, which responds well in terms of energy, it therefore does not waste energy and maintains constant conditions so it is pleasant to remain within an environment.
Evolving technologies, different, more mature environmental awareness and environmentally sustainable that have the purpose of managing energy sources properly, led to conceiving buildings where structural elements cooperate with each other. A kind of closed box - but not sealed - that must be able to breathe and proactively react to climate change, especially seasonal, and to temperature. Just think that 22% of energy used in homes is dispersed through the glazing.
If windows, exterior walls, ceilings and roof work together and well, there will be many advantages in terms of healthiness (because the formation of condensation and mould is prevented) and considerable savings in the bill under the items "heating" and "cooling".
It is clear that a building with these characteristics has greater commercial value and, since the energy certification requirements have been introduced, the described requirements are practically indispensable.
Windows are a key point for heat dispersion: frame, gaskets and glasses are a "system in the system".
Dispersion occurs not through the air leakage, as is commonly believed (and that are indeed useful if not excessive), but mostly through the transmission of heat through glass. Hence the opportunity to choose, as does Radici®, low thermal transmittance glazing (indicated by the Uw parameter) that allow the solar radiation spectrum to pass at high frequencies and yet prevent low frequency infrared rays to pass.
Radici® does even more to knock down the transmittance values: it uses warm edge conduit systems in double-glazing.
Glazing with this type of duct is obtained by assembling highly insulating materials that have the advantage of greatly reducing the effect of the cold edge and the formation of condensation on the edges of glass and windows.
Other important advantages obtained with this system are the low heat conductivity with excellent insulating capacity, improvement of Uw values compared to traditional systems and reduction of the air circulation near the window.
For the well-being of everyone, also considering savings.
