Passive house and wooden house green for the future

Speaking about prefabricated houses in Italy to maintain structures are very solid and stable and will many times have nothing to do with masonry houses and that there never would dream of adopting as a primary residence.

The technology for wooden houses instead have made great leaps forward both in terms of security of energy efficiency resulting from the houses to be recommended in seismic areas, but also for the construction of tall buildings in a safe and autonomous in terms of energy. These and many other features are those that are pre-fabricated houses of wood structures preferable to traditional concrete. No coincidence that these types of dwellings are traditionally associated with mountain life that is certainly more rigid than in the plains or in hilly reason why a tendency to build houses of wood or other homes in green building material should be completely natural coming years ago and not only at this time of environmental alarm.

One of the features that attract even greater concern when it comes to prefabricated wooden houses is certainly the one concerning the duration. If you go to analyze the laws still in force on the Italian territory, or if you have recently purchased a home, you will know that the security required after the manufacture of a house is ten years for a typical house in brick and concrete, any territory or region. For a prefabricated house of wood were instead adopted the regulations in force in major countries of manufacture and use thereof namely Germany and the Nordic countries, which totals 30 years. Three times that required for a brick house then that element should already make this type of housing preferred wood or shells.

In addition to the guarantee, however, there are many other features that make this method preferable to the traditional population from the same energy efficiency as the insulating properties of the wood is well known and optimizes except in some cases cancel the consumer concerning heating and cooling the interior of the house. Independent of its geographical location and the temperatures at which the wood is subjected it retains its insulating properties even allowing for the construction of large homes without heating systems within them. Although this type of house, known as passive house is beginning to now find space in the information world and particularly within the construction industry is a technology born 20 years ago ‘in Germany (which has always country at the forefront), the genius of two university professors. The comparison between the two, one German and one Swedish, led to the development of a proposed home that consume little and with emissions as low as possible project that went to become the hub of Passivhaus-Institut in Darmstadt, home design and evolving in order to achieve the highest standards of passive houses.

Surely as well as the building material that is used there are other factors determining the efficiency of the dwelling as the exposure level and orientation of the cardinal points.
