Environmentally Friendly buildings from Sustainable Timber
- outside temperature:-10°C;
- inside temperature +21°C
- heat turned off.
The time lag until the wall surface inside the room reaches 0°C is measured (test measurementss from the Technical University of Graz, Austria, 2001). The cooling down time is the objective measurement of the storage and release abilities of the building’s materials.
The graph shows that the cooling down time for a Holz100™ house is approximately 5-6 times longer than for a 2x4 construction with mineral wool insulation.
