Installation & Technical Consulting
In addition to selecting suitable, high-quality products for passive house construction, correct installation of the windows by an expert is also important.
In passive houses, windows have to be installed in the insulating level of the outer components, with particular care being given to an airtight connection to the component and to avoiding thermal bridges.
An additional over-insulation of the frame significantly reduces the heat losses. The decision must be made whether to install the windows before or after applying the thermal insulation. If they are installed before the thermal insulation is applied, metal brackets or metal plates are a common form of attachment.
However, these must be checked for any problems with potential thermal bridges. An alternative is prefabricated window reveal elements with attachment options for window installation.
These reveal elements are made from insulating material and feature a stop for the window, which further insulates the window frame.
