Kosovo, Europe, insulation, energy efficiency, building standards
Buildings with poor insulation and infiltration in doors, windows, and other openings have very high heating and cooling demands. Due to lack of maintenance, building materials, and standard they are whopping consumers. The necessity to save energy is enormous, especially with newly environmental constrains. Moreover, this would not only save our natural resources, but it would cut large sums that households spend on electricity, gas, or coal. Thermodynamic calculation of heat gain and loss gave us a lucid picture of benefits respecting nearly zero energy buildings standards while comparing same building prior and after improving its envelope. The consumption after renovating the envelope is 40 74% depending on buildings previous condition. The amount of CO2 released in the environment was cut to 65 75%.
