ClimateHouse is a certified building label of the autonomous Province of Bolzano, South Tirol, and stands for ecological, energy-efficient and sustainable construction. The specified requirements aren´t as severe as they are when constructing a passive-house.
Not only because of its compact method of construction, the high energy insulation of the building shell, the use of thermal insulation windows and of solar energy, a low-energy house also stands out due to an optimized housing technology. Moreover, a ClimateHouse increases the living comfort as an insulated building shell increases the surface temperature, while, at the same time, the room temperature is lowered. Thus overheating of the rooms during the summer months, which on Lake Garda can be very hot, can be avoided.
A ClimateHouse has many advantages as it is not only energy saving and environmentally friendly but also economically profitable:
The main feature of a ClimateHouse is its very low energy consumption which is achieved by an efficient insulation of the building shell, insulated glazing and a mostly airtight construction. This way the heating costs, which on average constitute around 70 % of the energy costs, can be drastically reduced. One can save up to 80 % of heating energy with a low-energy house of category A, while the additional costs for the insulation make up just about 2 %!
ClimateHouse-buildings can only be constructed by certified specialists. Also on Lake Garda there are now more and more companies specialized in this field. Contact your architect or geometer to find out about a suitable construction company.
