Example text

A number of design guides exist for the avoidance of cold bridges in new design and refurbishment. From the point of view of energy consumption, in most common constructions, cold bridges would increase the total heat loss from the envelope by only a few per cent, so this is not the main motivation for their avoidance. In modern structures envelope losses are dominated by losses through the glazing, which are in fact cold bridges, but are not amenable to conventional insulation treatment. Heating loads in non-domestic buildings tend to be small in relation to other energy uses—energy conservation is not just a matter of minimising heat loss.

During the heating season most solar radiation falls on south-facing surfaces. However, due the small demand for heating by midday, glazing facing south-east will have a better overall heat balance. Sloping south-facing glazing causes higher gains, but may cause overheating in summer unless shaded and ventilated. 1). They generally have lower surface area to volume ratios than smaller domestic buildings, and hence lower fabric losses. They are occupied during the daytime when the air temperature is at its highest and when solar gains are most likely to be present.

To reduce heat gains from artificial lighting: 1 Optimise the availability of daylight (but see comments in Chapter 6). 2 Provide good daylight distribution; freedom from contrast and glare will delay artificial lighting switch-on. 3 Install occupant-detecting switches or time switches to ensure that spaces are not lit unnecessarily. 4 Install light-sensitive switching controls to ensure that artificial light is not used when there is sufficient daylight. 5 Avoid unnecessarily high artificial lighting levels.
