YOUR FUTURE HOUSE

The culture of living in a wooden house is growing in our territory today. Due to its massive use in all major architectural works in the world, structural wood is often chosen for any kind of construction.

A wood-framed house is naturally equipped with many of its own characteristics of Bioarchitecture. The roof and the walls are always ventilated and the breathability to the outside is guaranteed by the use of natural and environmentally friendly materials. By carefully choosing finishing materials and especially insulating materials, it is possible to make construction fully meet the criteria of bio-building; The steps to be taken are not many and are not very expensive as the construction system is well adapted to the use of these materials.

This brings significant benefits in terms of energy and economy, enabling absolute comfort by maximizing the yield of heating and air conditioning systems. The construction methodology, defined as “dry”, guarantees reduced implementation times and does not cause problems in these houses due to moisture.

What is it

A passive house (Passivhaus according to the original German-language term) is a building where you can maintain an indoor climatically comfort throughout the year without resorting to active heating or air conditioning systems.

Of course, definitions and specifications vary considerably depending on where a passive house is built, because it is evident that there will be differences between a house built in Norway and one in Sicily.

A house is called “passive” because the sum of the passive heat inputs of the solar radiation transmitted by the windows and the heat generated internally by the household appliances and the occupants themselves are almost sufficient to compensate the losses of the enclosure during the cold season.

 

Advantages

In practice, a passive house keeps its ideal temperature inside with a high energy efficiency, so the advantage of having a passive house labeled Progetto Legno is SAVINGS both energy and money.

Energy Efficiency

Heat dispersion is one of the main problems of homes and buildings built without respecting the principles of energy efficiency.

In Europe, about 40% of total energy is dissipated by the residential sector, and this is why to reduce the levels of harmful emissions is aimed at improving the energy efficiency of buildings. In
this regard, Legislative Decree 192 of 2005 establishes the obligation for energy certification of buildings by issuing a certificate referring to Energy Classes.

The energy classes of buildings can be different according to local provisions and the primary energy needs that need to heat up every square meter of surface. The energy requirement is expressed in ‘kilowattora’ (KWh) and refers to a solar year. Assigning building energy classes by considering only heating in winter periods may seem reductive but it is to be said that determining the energy requirements required by heating a building are various factors: the type of heating system used and the materials of construction used.

Since 2006, energy verification in Italy has changed and the thermo technical design of the houses has come into force with the entry into force of the Decree Law of 19/08/05.

Progetto Legno tends to excel in building wooden buildings not only in accordance with law, but also with homes that improve the quality of life of those who live there by reducing energy waste.

The high-quality finishes research makes wooden houses in Class A efficiency signed Progetto Legno at very low energy cost.

For you and your family, an investment that respects the needs of man and nature.
