Building Physics:
Assessing thermal loss of buildings

Did you ever wonder how much of your heating bill is caused by badly insulated windows or walls? Or how much energy you could save by adjusting the temperature level in a room?

The gSKIN® is the ideal tool for thermal measurements in building physics to answer these questions. The gSKIN® Heat Flux Sensor features:

How to measure the U-Value of a building and how to analyze the results

Application Note for Building Physics

 

Applications in building physics

Thermal energy into the building is coming mainly from the heating system and from solar irradiation. The energy exchange between the building and the outside is focused through the roof, walls, windows and thermal bridges e.g. balconies, into the soil and through exchange of ambient air. Thus, a building is a complex thermal system and to optimize it (for example to reduce heating costs) precise data is required.
