Thermal modernization of buildings

The consumption of thermal energy can be reduced through building thermal modernization. It involves various improvements that not only enhance the building’s thermal performance but also the efficiency of central heating, hot water, cooling, and ventilation systems, among others.

However, this is a solution that comes with a long return on investment period. Therefore, if the building’s envelope has already been insulated, it’s worth considering the cost-effectiveness analysis of thermomodernization. If the return on investment period turns out to be too long, other more financially favorable solutions can always be considered.

Thermomodernization of a building involves, among other things, replacing doors and windows, insulating walls, roofs, attic floors, floors on the ground, and walls that border unheated zones.

Thermomodernization also involves improving the previously mentioned systems, such as central heating, cooling, process heating, hot water, and heat recovery ventilation (the latter being one of the most energy-efficient solutions).

At Energy Trend, we will conduct a detailed energy audit for you, identifying all possible improvements, not only in terms of building thermomodernization. We will also propose installation solutions that are optimally tailored to the specifics of your company.

A thermomodernization audit

A thermomodernization audit, also known as a building energy audit, involves conducting surveys and analyses to create a report that provides guidelines for performing thermomodernization of a building. The goal of such modernization is to reduce the energy consumption required for heating, ventilation, and hot water preparation, which will lead to financial savings and a reduced environmental impact. A thermomodernization audit takes into account the specifics of the building, such as its location, size, shape, materials used in construction, the type of insulation, and any defects that may have occurred over years of use. The purpose of the building and the type of activities conducted in it are also essential considerations.

The audit report may include recommendations for necessary repairs, suggestions for installing modern systems and equipment, and information about financing options, such as energy efficiency grants.

The main goal of a thermomodernization audit is to take a comprehensive look at the building and identify opportunities for modernization that will bring both financial and ecological benefits. A common mistake made by those undertaking thermomodernization is the use of standard solutions without prior research, such as insulation placement or window replacement. This approach can overlook significant issues, resulting in changes that only slightly improve the situation and a slow return on investment.

An audit can reveal the existence of issues such as thermal bridges or significant heat loss through an outdated gravity ventilation system. Addressing these problems often yields better results than simply installing costly wall insulation.
